The African Capital Markets Forum was formed in 1996 to support efforts to build capital markets in Africa and to expand the knowledge base of African markets. ACMF seeks to promote best practice in capital market regulation, and operates by periodically compiling and making relavant research available to capital market regulators and professionals around the world. The essays in this volume are divided into two parts. The first part provides an overview of research topics relevant to the development of capital markets in developing economies in general e.g.Political risk in emerging and developed markets; open markets, foreign investors and emerging nations; securities markets. Part two covers recent research on African capital markets, e.g. studies of the Ghana stockmarket/stock exchange; Nigeria's stock market; the Botswana share market and its role in financial and economic development; and integrating Africa into international financial markets.
