Reflections on Africa’s Development
Essays in Honour of Abdoulie Janneh

This paper has explored the issues of policy space available to developing
economies in the current era of globalization. It sought to
identify the processes through which policy space was circumscribed
and looked from a sectoral perspective at some of the specific global
norms, arrangements and agreements limiting the policy space of
developing countries. While it was evident that policy space had
indeed been reduced and that some of the arguments advanced in
justification did not hold water, it would seem difficult to put the
‘genie back in the bottle’ at least in the short term. Possible options
for State action within limited policy space were therefore outlined
as a potential remedy.

Assisting African countries to achieve their full potential within the
bounds of policy space available to them must continue to inform
work on development policy going forward into the future. This must
remain a major priority in the work of ECA.
