 Continued scientific research activities targeted at giving policy directions and solutions to Africa's myriad challenges are critical to the continent's progress and development. These challenges have stymied Africa's socio-economic and political development. Africa, unlike other continents, has lagged in terms of progress and development, owing to issues such as corruption, conflict, election fraud, ethnic cleavages or identity, race and racism, xenophobic hostility, and resource scarcity, among others. While other continents appear to have discovered solutions to these problems, Africa continues to be tormented by them. It has recently had a growing breakdown in a democratic government in some states, making it one of the continents with the worst histories of military coups, democratic regime distortions, and violations of fundamental human rights in the twenty-first century. Power grabs, unlawful military takeovers, and coups d'état are all too often in Africa these d............

Africa's burgeoning population and the inability to address its growing problems have branded the continent as the world's most troubled and underdeveloped continent. Inequality and rising income differences between African states and citizens have matched this, making some African states more desirable as migratory destinations. Migration within and across Africa is a known factor of hatred, insecurity, and violence among Africans in Africa. Apart from migration tensions, the emergence of Covid-19 has broken Africa's efforts to build its image and capabilities in the global system. The Covid-19 new normal has not only slowed down growth and development in Africa it has also impoverished lives and livelihoods. As a result, Africa is affected by difficulties that have tarnished its image in the global system. Poverty, rising unemployment, xenophobic violence, economic slump, religious and ethnic conflicts, climate change, land grab disputes, human trafficking, pandemics, inequality, cri............

 In the age of rapid globalization, Africa is moving but struggles with teething challenges that account for its abysmal level of development. Despite these challenges, African scholars and researchers through research have continued to identify and proffer measures in terms of policy directions to African governments to address inherent African problems. These measures have significantly contributed to the transformation that necessitates vigorous efforts in research and policy thinking in Africa, especially, among African scholars. While scholars in the continent, have conscientiously engaged in research to unravel African challenges, the African Renaissance has remained vastly instrumental and committed to the vision of African transformation, through the publishing of research works related to African issues and challenges. African Renaissance is a journal aimed at the periodic publishing of research outputs related to African issues or challenges. Since its inception, this j............

 The experiences of African states from pre-colonialism, colonial era through independence and the post-modern period have continue to evolve. As the continent continues to grapple with old challenges, new ones are emerging and these combine to create complex situations. In the face of this development, African scholars, researchers, policymakers and practitioners remain undaunted in understanding the situations and proffering solutions to the challenges. Since inception, African Renaissance has demonstrated unwavering partnership towards the transformation of Africa and the promotion of its cause through the provision of a formidable platform for publishing research from these groups. The Journal through its internal mechanism has continued to project African affairs by accommodating articles on African issues that are of high quality, after they have gone through its peer-review process. The contributions in this Issue are timely and very topical as they cover virtually all are............

 The world and Africa in particular are still laden with developmental challenges and issues which have raised serious concern about the survival of Africa, especially in this era of the COVID-19 pandemic. Africa, despite these challenges, has a potential for significant progress–a transformation that necessitates vigorous efforts in research and policy thinking. These efforts have made many researchers, governments, and international organizations discover, debate, and proposed targets and goals that can sustainably address the challenges ravaging the continent. These highlights the importance of collaborative global attempts and interventions through developmental initiatives, specifically designed to address developmental global issues, including that of Africa.    These developmental issues such as poverty, education, health, gender equality, election, climate, partnership, environmental justice, security, and peace among others have over the years gained............

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............
