The annual conferences of the International Academy of African Business and Development (IAABD) are open to scholars, professionals, and graduate students of any nationality who are interested or actively engaged in the research and performance or administration of business and economic development issues as they relate to Africa. These conferences aim at facilitating multidisciplinary research on Africa’s related issues, stimulating collaborations between Africa based researchers and their counterparts around the world, broadening and deepening global understanding of the various challenges facing African business and development, as well as advancing alternative solutions to Africa’s business and development challenges.

Conference Theme: "Towards Sustainable African Business Development: Integrating Formal and Informal Business"

The 2015 conference focuses on the formalization and integration of the African informal economy to mainstream activities in African business and development, and how this might enhance economic growth and development. You are invited to submit any original theoretical, conceptual, empirical, and managerial contributions that address the conference theme as well as other related areas of business and development.

Papers, abstracts, and proposals for special sessions should be submitted electronically to the IAABD submission portal in Microsoft Word by January 31, 2015.
