The African Journal of International Affairs and Development is an interdisciplinary publication devoted to high quality commentaries, articles, research notes, and book reviews on the legal, political-diplomatic, economic, sociocultural, and military-security issues at the core of Africa's foreign relations and world affairs. It covers the environment, development issues, conflict and cooperation among regional actors in a global context. Despite its African origin, AJIAD maintains a wide thematic variety and broad outlook in theory, methodology and area focus. Special attention is paid to significant developments in Asia which provide lessons for Africa as dynamic societies entering a phase in global development and technology. In its aim to break down the barriers among the worlds of academia, journalism, government and business, AJIAD's advertisement section includes announcements of conferences, meetings, new books, journals, and programmes. Information on tourism, trade and business worldwide is also included (contact the Advert Manager for current advertisement rates and schedules).
