African Geopolitics is a high-profile instrument for analyzing the progress of political, economic, social and cultural integration in the Continent’s different regions. Special attention is paid to developments in the framework of regional organizations (ECOWAS, CAEMC, ECCAS, SADC), international institutions (UN, IMF, the World Bank), security and crisis management.
In ten years African Geopolitics has become a reference of analysis regarding the African continent’s future.
The journal is published in two separate language versions – in English and French – and is circulated all around the world.
Its internationally renowned authors share two major common features: notoriety and experience.
- Notoriety. Each issue contains articles written by prestigious authors. No matter whether they are Africans or not, all of them have in-depth knowledge of the geopolitics of Africa and their notoriety helps attract an international audience to the journal.
- Experience. Most of the articles published in the journal’s different issues are written by acknowledged experts – actors or analysts and theoreticians of the Continent’s evolution. They help transform African Geopolitics into a high-profile instrument of analysis in the interests of both governments and individuals, of Africa’s present and future.
