Book Proposals

The purpose of your book must be to disseminate original research and new developments for, from and about Africa in the specific relevant fields. We particularly encourage inter and transdisciplinary approaches, research for impact and engaged research. Publications may be a monograph, or an edited collection of chapters that offers new insights from an African perspective.  We therefore invite established and emerging researchers to submit book proposals.
