Strathmore joins Beijing Foreign Studies University of Law in enhancing research, and student exchange programmes
A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) and Cooperation between Strathmore University and Beijing Foreign Studies University of Law (BFSU), China-Africa Legal Research Institute and China-Africa Legal Training Centre was signed on December 4, 2018.
Areas of collaboration were proposed and discussed with the Chinese delegation which included the Dean of BFSU, Prof. Wan Meng. Also present were Mukami Wangai, Director, Local Partnerships, Strathmore Law School (SLS) and Dr. Arielle Emmet, a Fulbright scholar researching on “China in Africa: Labor, Culture, and Legal Disputes in a Baptism of Fire”.
The MoU will see the two universities work together to develop joint research activities and programmes, research and development centres and publications. SLS faculty can make contributions to the China-Africa Law Review, while BFSU faculty and students were also welcomed to make submissions to the Strathmore Law Review and the Strathmore Law Journal. It will also facilitate the student and faculty exchange programmes.
The research and educational processes in both institutions will be enhanced with the objectives of advancing, through sustainable capacity-building in the field of international law, the rule of law. The MoU will also advance the development of rule-based intergovernmental and institutional relations between Kenya and China, and the outside world.
