Abstract:This supplement of the 'Journal of African Economies' features AERC plenary papers on the theme: Financial Inclusion and Innovation in Africa, presented during the December 2013 biannual research workshop. Africa is growing genuinely but the growth has not been sufficiently inclusive. For some countries, there is coexistence of high growth and rising inequality and/or poverty, posing serious challenges for policy makers. Contributions: Financial inclusion and innovation in Africa: an overview (Thorsten Beck, Lemma Senbet, and Witness Simbanegavi); The role of informal financial services in Africa (Leora Klapper and Dorothe Singer); Cross-border banking and financial deepening: the African experience (Thorsten Beck); Financial innovations and their implications for monetary policy in Kenya (Lydia Ndirangu and Esman Morekwa Nyamongo).
