About

The digital forum African Futures explores protest movements and resistance to authoritarian rule across the African continent, with particular attention to the oft-neglected democratic currents south of the Sahara.

African Futures serves as a forum for thoughtful analysis and exploration of democratic trends, mass mobilization, and protest movements in Africa. At a moment when popular upheaval and resistance to authoritarian rule have exploded across Africa and the Middle East, attention to the legacy of authoritarianism and the social consciousness of populations in the Sub-Saharan regions of the continent has been largely absent in the international media. African Futures seeks to bring critical analysis of these trends to the fore, with contributions on African politics, history, and social change from leading researchers and activists.
