Abstract

Since the 1960s, Africans have been struggling to deepen and institutionalize democracy. The two most important factors that can help African countries democratize their politics are a robust civil society and a democratic culture. This paper argues that an effective copyright law can be used to bring about these two factors, which are critical to democratization in the continent.
