For three consecutive years, the IoDSA in conjunction with the International Finance Corporation (IFC) and sponsored by the
Swiss State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO) hosted a case study competition sought case
studies that are recent and relevant to the African continent corporate governance
environment and landscape.
The competition encouraged global submissions from participants on all areas of African corporate governance. The case studies were required to be based on corporate governance cases in Africa, within organisations which could be expected to, or chose to, apply the principles contained in the King Reports on Corporate Governance in South Africa or the relevant corporate governance codes of the country within which the organisation operates.
