From April 2022, GIGA researcher Dr. Tim Glawion will take over as acting editor of the GIGA journal Africa Spectrum. He succeeds the GIGA’s Dr. Julia Grauvogel, who previously oversaw the journal, which is published three times a year. Leonardo R. Arriola of the University of California, Berkeley remains co-editor.
Excellent contributions by researchers from all over the world are featured in the four journals. The GIGA Journal Family is published by SAGE Publishing, maintaining the platinum standard of the open access model.
The GIGA Institute for African Affairs analyses political and socio-economic developments in sub-Saharan Africa. Political institutions, violent conflicts, as well as a variety of socio-economic challenges form the thematic core. The aim of the research is to paint a nuanced picture of sub-Saharan Africa.
This issue of Africa Spectrum explores Africa's role in international politics. Among other topics, it examines Tanzania's peace and security policy, the West African Health Organisation, and Africa’s position in climate negotiations.
