New Editor of the GIGA Journal "Africa Spectrum"

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.

  • Dr. Tim Glawion has been working as a Research Fellow at the GIGA Institute for African Studies since 2018. Meanwhile, he has also been a research advisor to the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute and the aid organisation Cordaid, among others. At the GIGA, his research focuses on security issues and the restoration of the state monopoly on the use of force in the Central African Republic, Lebanon, and Somalia. He is currently working on the research project “The Monopoly on the Use of Force and Paradoxes of Security – Discrepancies between Objective and Subjective Security in the Central African Republic and Lebanon.” Starting in March, he will provide his expertise to Africa Spectrum, taking over the editorship of the journal together with Leonardo R. Arriola from the University of California, Berkeley. The GIGA would like to thank Dr. Julia Grauvogel, who has co-edited the journal for the past four years, for her successful stewardship of Africa Spectrum. Africa Spectrum is part of the GIGA Journal Family and is published in cooperation with SAGE. As an Open Access publication, it is available online free of charge. It is a peer-reviewed journal dedicated to research on the politics, society, and economics of sub-Saharan Africa. As a multidisciplinary journal, Africa Spectrum welcomes submissions drawing on a variety of different theoretical and methodological approaches. In addition to original research articles, the journal publishes analytical reports and book reviews. The journal is a member of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE).
