African statehood and the international political economy

This research group focuses on the interface between international political-economy contexts and the notions and realities of African statehood across times. It is underlined by the assumption that Africa and Africa states exist in a global context where the policies, actions or inactions, and practices of major political-economy actors shape the identities, character, functions and ideological orientations of statehood. This group is guided by questions such as how have changes in the international environment influenced notions of statehood in Africa over time? How are global economic, security and political events impinging on the African states and shaping development and security outcomes on the continent?
