Suluhu Papers

 

The Suluhu Working Papers address contemporary issues around the analysis of politics and society in Central Africa’s Great Lakes region, with a particular focus on contestation and conflict over resources, politics, and authority. They appear in English or French and serve as platform for peer-reviewed (non-blind) pieces of scholarship and in-depth, fieldwork-based empirical research – and they are open source, since another of the numerous barriers is access to and distribution of research results and products. Each Suluhu Paper should range between 5000 and 10000 words. Despite professional review, the content of each paper remains the authors’ sole responsibility. Submit your draft here.

Les ‘Suluhu Working Papers’ abordent des questions contemporaines autour de l’analyse de la politique et de la société dans les Grands Lacs d’Afrique , avec un accent particulier sur les contestations et conflits autour des ressources, du pouvoir, et de l’identité. Ils apparaissent en anglais ou français et servent de plate-forme pour des articles d’examen collégial (non-anonymisé) basés sur des recherches profondes de terrain. En plus, ils sont librement accessibles, car un autre parmi de nombreux obstacles est l’accès et la distribution des résultats de recherche. Chaque ‘Suluhu Paper’ doit etre entre 5000 et 10000 mots. Malgré révision professionnelle, la responsabilité du contenu des textes demeure seule avec les auteurs. Envoyez les soumissions ici.
