African Renaissance is 1

It is exactly one year since we made our debut as  a bi-monthly, multidisciplinary platform for the analysis of Africa’s challenge — and hopes. We wanted a non-glossy journal, which would be a cross between an academic publication and any higher-end report, and which would target a special set of readership. We have been overwhelmed by the tremendous support and goodwill the project has received. We are immensely grateful to our readers, subscribers and advertisers for helping to sustain our enthusiasm for the project.

Please let us know how you feel about the journal. Your feedback will always be very appreciated. Please contact us at editor@adonis-abbey-com
