content policy? How different is local content today, from earlier initiatives like the
creation of national petroleum or mining companies to engage with multinationals
in the extractive sector? What is the scope of LCP frameworks in the African
transformation agenda? Does local content mean the same thing to governments,
extractive industry, CSOs, etc.? Can LCP frameworks deal with the enclave nature
of the extractive sector in Africa?
