 The present Issue of Affrika: Journal of Politics, Economics and Society (JPES) attempts a somewhat panoramic look at the African continent by engaging with issues concerning various African countries.  In specific terms, the Issue contains eleven scholarly contributions on seven different African countries namely Somalia, Kenya, Tanzania, Sudan, Zimbabwe, South Africa, and Nigeria. More remarkable is the fact that one of such articles foraged beyond Africa by beaming its searchlight towards the interplay of Africa and the United States of America. At the end of it all, the Issue comprises seven research articles, one opinion article or commentary, and three book reviews. The beauty of this lies in the representation of the three foci of the journal, namely politics, economics, and society, in this Issue. These indeed are among the factors demonstrating the uniqueness of the present Issue, as will be articulated below. In their article entitled “Terrorism in Africa: A............

Given the nature of Affrika: Journal of Politics, Economics and Society (JPES) as a multidisciplinary journal, committed to the publication of constructive articles on the range of issues that affect Africa and African people world-wide, its present issue contains submissions on various facets of life with regard to the African continent.  Affrika particularly seeks to feature articles that focus on the interplay of African politics, economics, and societies, with a view to producing knowledge for the social reinvention and development of Africa. Pursuant to such a laudable commitment the articles contained in the present issue of the journal may be characterised as a reflection of the Africanist position as they engage in a critical and constructive fashion with the continent’s development challenges. The articles featured in present issue are loosely related along the foci of the journal as reflected in its title namely politics, economy and society, and may therefore ............

This edition of Affrika: Journal of Politics, Economics and Society is devoted to revisiting Africa’s past and present educational agenda through a careful rethinking of the intersection between the human factor, educational leadership, and development, in the African context.  The special edition attempts an interrogation of the disconnect between education and development on the continent especially in view of the putative linkage between the current educational systems and the pervasive low productivity and dysfunctions in Africa. The examination of the missing link between education and development  in Africa, as pursued in this edition, is significantly interrogative of the visions of such notable African leaders as Houphet Boigny (Cote d’Ivoire), Kaunda (Zambia), Lumumba/ Mobutu (Congo-Kinshasa), Machel (Mozambique), Nasser (Egypt), Nkrumah (Ghana), and Nyerere (Tanzania) and some notable others who were committed to the ent............

The continent of Africa continues to be at the throes of crises of great proportions. It is the most-conflict ridden continent in the world. Latest statistics show that within a spate of ten years (2005-2014), the continent of Africa recorded 187 disputes, 196 non-violent crises, 358 violent crises, 87 limited wars, and 49 wars (Statistica, 2015). Indeed, since 2005, there has never been a crises-free year and the number has continued to increase over the years. Expectedly, the major impacts of the multiple security challenges are evident in the loss of a huge number of lives, displacements of millions of people and the destruction of inestimable number of properties and means of livelihood. Conflicts make the continent to be poorer and also constitute major cogs in the wheel of its progress (Hoeffler, 2008:6). In the area of poverty reduction or alleviation, the continent has not fared better. An overwhelming majority of the populace continues to live in abject poverty and various i............

  There is a huge body of literature on the crisis peace building in the Niger Delta region of Nigeria and yet the region continues to be a topical area of concern not only to the Nigerian state; its peoples and government, but also to scholars and human development agencies globally. This is essentially because the pervasive crisis of underdevelopment which underlies various forms of social and armed conflict in the region remains unresolved. They are constantly assuming new dimensions and trajectories that perpetuate a frightening human security crisis (see UNDP Report, 2006; Sampson, 2008; Okeke-Uzodike and Isike, 2009), which calls for continuous global attention given that conflict can be exported (Ayoob, 1995). The most recent efforts at peace-building in the region by the Nigerian government; the Niger Delta amnesty programme, has also attracted attention as although it is still early days after only a year in............
