The world is in transition, sub-national and national governments, sub-regional and regional organizations continue to position and re-position to maximize the changes and dynamics of events that shape global affairs. Attempts have been made to articulate these phenomena in ways that they can be identify, so that the measures at either curbing or achieving them can be evolved both in isolation and partnership at the national, regional and global levels respectively. These underscore the United Nations’ Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) escalated to the Sustainable Developments Goals (SDGs) and the insights from the World Economic Forum (WEF) with regard to the revolution in information communications technologies. The issues articulated in these development initiatives have impacted and will continue to impact the African states and the people differently. To navigate through these, African leaders, scholars, policy makers and administrators continue to engage and interrogate ............

 It is very much in order to set-out my editorial commentary of this African Renaissance publication Volume 17, Number 2, June 2020, by wishing all and sundry well in this COVID-19 pandemic times. True, coronavirus may have come to stay- as is being touted by political leaders globally – but its probable hardship to human conditions could not weigh us down not to see that this edition of the African Renaissance go public. Besides, this coronavirus epoch also present some measure of scholarly boost as an element of intellectual propensity which will greatly help to further the aims and objectives of the African Renaissance journal. What do I mean? The precarious developmental level Africa found herself before the outbreak of the virus called for serious and plentiful scholarly engagements across all fields of study to rebirth the continent in its development strides. How much more then under a COVID-19 pandemic era that has assumed the euphemism for radical social life style ............

African Renaissance is a journal that has a history of high-quality contribution to knowledge on social and political dynamics of Africa. The African continent has a chequered social, economic and political history that is inundated with developmental challenges. The way out this quagmire requires a multi-faceted approach, one of which is the production of policy-relevant, actionable research. This is the focus of the African Renaissance as a journal, which has been kept intact since inception. Since its debut, successive Issues of the journal has been professionally published and this is attested to by the status of the journal as a premium collection of articles on African affairs. Beyond the fact that articles published in the African Renaissance have a well-balanced contribution of researchers across different disciplines in the social sciences and humanities, it encourages collaboration between the research and policy communities for valid contributions to the quest for Africa............

 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 throug............

  As usual, it is my delight that another intellectually stimulating, as well as gratifying scholarships - through the medium of the African Renaissance- focused on contradicting the immanent variables, forces and factors that condition Africa to be under-developed hits the public space again. Truly, the immanent contradictions of development that besieges Africa are both numerous and of nuance character, hence the multi-dimensional versatility of the diagnosed topics in this Edition. The Edition begins with further interrogating the federal paradigm’s functionality on the throes of efficient local administrations in place from the Nigerian experience as the prism for other African federal systems. Following the first topic of currency are discourses attentive to the advancement of e-education, the question of nationalism and ethnicity and an insightful interrogation of good governance and service delivery during the Jacob Zuma administration. Ghana’s youths, migratio............

Just like the previous editions of the African Renaissance, this Edition continues in our tradition of sustaining intellectual discussions by African scholars for Africa’s overall advancement. The task of developing Africa affords no time for relaxation. And, in fact, this is exactly what this Edition underscores going by the topicality of developmental issues addressed in all the papers. This Edition begins by diagnosing causative factors associated with the problem of youth restiveness. It then engages topics like America’s hegemonic preponderance, democratic consoled-ation in the continent, the implication of child marriage on gender empowerment and on strides necessary to decolonise education in Africa. It takes up with keen interest the question of multilateral social dialogue Africa needs for her transformation and the vulnerability that young Zimbabwean female immigrants are exposed to, as well as the contribution of African immigrants to global knowledge repository. The par............
