The Africa and International Studies Working Group was formally established in summer 2007. The Group aims to provide a forum in which to bring together a diverse range of scholars to discuss and debate:
- substantive issues arising from a study of Africa and ‘the international’;
- theoretical and conceptual debates about the relationship between 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.
