Despite the growing demands for a coherent approach on international investment policy, African States are yet to clearly develop a unified and original approach towards the development of an authentic initiative that evinces an African experience. It is the basic argument of this chapter that the current reform initiatives in Africa, whether at the regional, continental or national level, not only lack conference, but also require further philosophical thinking. Such reforms must be based on continental consensus with a clear vision on the expected results and they must also take account of and provide avenues for the representation of all stakeholders, including foreign investors.
