This edition focuses on contemporary issues of Africa’s development. In line with the tradition of African Renaissance of sustaining intellectual discourse, African scholars thought aloud on advancing and consolidating Africa’s development process. In this edition, the first set of papers interrogate the implications of United Nations’ peace keeping missions in Africa, drawing from the experiences of Congo, South Sudan and the Central African Republic; mitigating malfeasance politics in the ivory towers, as well as South African’s perspective on the nexus between migration and xenophobic attacks, especially, in post-1994 South Africa respectively. The second set of papers revisited the trajectories of land ownership in South Africa, the strategy of justice dispensation and reconciliation in Zimbabwe and improving service delivery in South Africa. The last set of papers explores combating the socio-cultural drivers of HIV/AIDS scourge in South Africa through indigenous songs, and corruption in Nigeria from the Diaspora within 2015 to 2019 respectively. Sub-regional efforts at development equally came under focus with lessons from the Southern African Development Community (SADC) and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) and how to break the artificial barriers of foster children to self-actualization and societal development were examined respectively. The Reviewers are appreciated for their meticulousness, comments and observations that enriched the papers. In similar vein, I commend the authors for attending to the Reviewers’ comments, suggestions and corrections judiciously which improved their papers. This Edition also testifies to the African Renaissance’s firm resolve and commitment towards Africa’s socio-economic and political emancipation.
