Exploring Africa's Agency in International Politics

Amanda Coffie, Lembe Tiky
Published: 27 October 2021

Abstract: A protracted conventional knowledge within mainstream International Relations (IR) has been that African agents (states, organizations, and diplomats) are consumers of international norms and practices designed in the affluent countries of the Global North. Papers in this special issue present a challenge to this view; they discuss the active role and the influence of African actors in international politics and renew a call for the development of IR theories, concepts, and methods that reflect Global Southern and African experiences, ideas, institutions, actors and processes.
Keywords: Africa / agency / global south / international politics / Afrika / Akteursqualität / Globaler Süden / internationale Politik
