Published since 1971, The African Review hosts intellectual debates and discussions on African politics, development and international affairs. It welcomes theoretical and empirical submissions which are provocative in analyzing the social, economic and political forces that shape the present and future of the continent. Being an interdisciplinary journal, The African Review covers various fields such as political science, international relations, strategic studies, law, public administration, sociology, gender studies, history, economics, political geography, demography, and development studies. The African Review has for many years established itself as a peer reviewed academic journal of repute in Africa and beyond. The journal welcomes manuscripts that apply a comparative approach or a single case study with broader implications for knowledge contribution.
