Bank regulation in Africa is at a crossroads. The transition from Basel I to Basel II was relatively smooth, although there were many a 'doubting Thomas' on the feasibility of Basel II banking regulatory codes. With the global financial crisis and the collapse of Basel II, the new financial regulatory architecture is anchored on Basel III. Bank regulators in Africa, and commercial bankers in the continent, are worried about many features of Basel III but their voices seem to be in the wilderness. This book highlights the issues that have characterized the landscape of transition in bank regulation in Africa. Old hopes dashed, but some new hopes have emerged, alongside new challenges.
