The talk will focus on a recent paper published which reports on the empirical work from engagement activities conducted in Africa to develop governance frameworks for a local biobank and a common governance framework for the continent. It will touch upon the challenges of carrying out socio-legal research in (a) foreign jurisdiction(s), the experiences with developing research and cooperation links in a very particular local as well as in a difficult international setting, and the ethical and legal challenges facing this research generally. The general aim of the talk is to share experiences with colleagues with an interest in empirical and comparative legal and socio-legal research.
