FY 2013/2014 Research Topic: B-202
Political Economy in Contemporary Africa

Outline

African countries have recently seen drastic changes in all political, economic, and social aspects. Rapid economic growth, growing economic disparity, swift democratization, and the outbreak of armed conflicts are only a few features of the far-reaching social changes in Africa. Thus, a deep understanding of the changes in this continent is quite necessary not only for academic interests, but also for elaborating on appropriate policy interventions. With the aim of providing information on and perspectives for today’s changing Africa, this research project carries out in-depth analyses of important events and actively presents the results through the web-page ‘Africa Report’.
