Africa fascinates. We want to convey the original thinking that is reshaping the continent. One of the more exciting developments was the foundation of Ashesi University in 2012. As an early adopter of the liberal arts model of education in Africa, students benefit from a wide range of guest lecturers, which led to the establishment of the Ashesi Economic Journal. Mot Juste edits and publishes the journal on behalf of the university.
The challenge: re-publish an academic book in a more attractive way and at a more affordable cost for West African students. ‘Children’s Rights in Ghana’ was published in the USA at a cost of $75 per copy. Mot Juste obtained the rights and re-published the book at $25 per copy. The book is currently used by students of Sociology at universities in Ghana.
