This paper explores the effects of international trade, and in particular international trade policy, on poverty in Africa. It is based on a broad literature concerning these Jinks in general, which the author has written about elsewhere - especially McCulloch, et at.. (2001), and Winters (2002), Winters, et at.. (2004) - but it focuses on and draws examples from the set of issues most relevant to Sub-Saharan Africa.
