Africa and International Studies
To join a working group you must first join BISA.
The Africa and International Studies Working Group provides a forum that brings together a diverse range of scholars to discuss and debate: substantive issues arising from range of different dimensions of 'the international' in Africa; theoretical and conceptual debates about the relationship between the generalities of the discipline of International Studies and African historically-based specificities; and ideas about the relationship of issues and theory in the pedagogy of International Studies in and of Africa.
