In January Cambridge University Press published Public Procurement Regulation in Africa edited by Prof Geo Quinot (Stellenbosch University) and Prof Sue Arrowsmith (University of Nottingham). The book aims to address the shortage of scholarship in the area of public procurement regulation on the African continent and to promote future research. In the book the law governing public procurement in a number of African systems is analysed and key themes relevant to all African states are looked at. Part I discusses the regulatory regimes of nine African systems using a common framework, providing both a focused view of these African systems and an accessible comparative perspective. In Part II, key regulatory issues in public procurement that are particularly relevant in the African context are assessed through a comparative approach. The chapters consider the influence of international regulatory regimes (particularly the UNCITRAL Model Law on procurement) on African systems and provide insights into the way public procurement regulation is approached in Africa. Apart from contributions by Quinot, the book also contains chapters written by Prof Phoebe Bolton and Dr Sope Williams-Elegbe, both of Stellenbosch University. The book is one of the first major outcomes of the work done by the African Public Procurement Regulation Research Unit, established at Stellenbosch University in 2012.
