A Review of International Legal Instruments : Facilitation of Transport and Trade in Africa, Second Editionde Matons, Jean Grosdidier (World Bank, Washington, DC, 2014-03-01)This is the second edition of the 2003
paper entitled "Facilitation of transport and trade in
Sub-Saharan Africa : a review of international legal
instruments - Treaties, conventions, protocols, decisions,
directives." Three major reasons motivated this update
and an expansion of its scope. First, African countries are
increasingly cooperating, especially in the area of
corridors, to achieve full connectivity, mobility and
accessibility. To that end, they are concluding new
agreements and conventions. Second, this new edition has
been extended to the whole of the African continent,
including the Maghreb, which was not in the previous
inventory. Third, air transport and associated agreements
and conventions were added at the request of countries.
Indeed, the future of air transport in Africa is bright. It
is likely that it becomes an affordable mode of transport to
reach remote areas.

Reshaping the International Monetary Architecture : Lessons from Keynes’ PlanPiffaretti, Nadia F. (2012-03-19)As the global economy undergoes profound
changes, it is becoming apparent that the so-called
"Revived Bretton Woods System" has increased the
overall vulnerability of the global financial architecture.
Therefore, it is worth revisiting the origins of the Bretton
Woods conference, and pointing out the relevance for today s
framework of Keynes original 1942 plan for an International
Clearing Union. This note explores the main characteristics
of Keynes' original plan, by revisiting his original
writings between 1940 and 1944, and outlining its relevance
to the current debate on the international financial
architecture. The note suggests that reforms of the
