The project “Dutch Multinational Businesses, Dutch Government And The Promotion Of Productive Employment In Sub-Sahara Africa: A Comparative Study Of Kenya And Nigeria” aims at understanding the nature of the relationship between multinational businesses and their host and home governments and how this influences the character of such companies. The project is part of the research agenda of the Knowledge Platform Development Policies and funded by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs through NWO-WOTRO. The research, using Kenya as its main study and Nigeria as a comparative study aims at exploring how stakeholders can reduce institutional and operational tensions that affect multinational businesses in Africa.
The project start-up seminar, hosted by University of Nairobi, took place on 13 -14 November 2014 in Nairobi, Kenya.
