CEAUP Studies on Africa

Edited By Joao Carlos Garcia, Alexander Keese and Marciel Santos


Still-existing gaps in the current knowledge on Africa are an opportunity for collective scientific efforts: if formerly stable academic boundaries can be transgressed, then these lacunas may provide a good chance to advance with new interdisciplinary designs.

CEAUP (Centre of African Studies of the Porto University) is an interdisciplinary research centre working on African issues.

This series allows the discussion of CEAUP’s efforts in a larger, international context. The studies to be included focus on subjects regarded as especially innovative and which may help our understanding of African current impasses:

– Identity and group conflict
– Patterns of change in production and labour relationships, notably forced labour
– Access to natural resources, such as water, land and raw materials
– State building and ‘civil society’

The series accepts monographs, collected papers and conference proceedings in English.
