Africa Yearbook Online

in African Research Online
The Africa Yearbook Online is part of African Research Online.

The Africa Yearbook covers major domestic political developments, the foreign policy and socio-economic trends in sub-Sahara Africa – all related to developments in one calendar year. The Yearbook contains articles on all sub-Saharan states, each of the four sub-regions (West, Central, Eastern, Southern Africa) focusing on major cross-border developments and subregional organizations as well as one article on continental developments and one on European-African relations. While the articles have thorough academic quality, the Yearbook is mainly oriented to the requirements of a large range of target groups: students, politicians, diplomats, administrators, journalists, teachers, practitioners in the field of development aid as well as business people.

The Africa Yearbook Online offers access to all yearbooks and is automatically updated upon publication of the new yearbook.

The Africa Yearbook is an indispensable reference work for scholars, journalists, diplomats and (non)governmental organizations.
