FY 2016/2017 Research Topic: B-2-03
Political Economy in Contemporary Africa


African countries have recently experienced significant changes in a variety of political, economic, and social aspects. Rapid economic growth, increasing income gaps, democratization and active party politics, and outbreaks of armed conflict are only a few examples of the far-reaching social changes in Africa. A deep understanding of these changes is quite important not only for academic interests but also for the formulation of effective policy. To provide accurate information on and reliable analysis of today’s Africa, this research project actively delivers its results through the online magazine “Africa Report”.
