Human Sciences Research Council Publication Africa Focus 2008 Theme: Governance in Africa The Human Sciences Research Council (HSRC), South Africa’s premier social research institution, invites the scholarly community and policy intellectuals to send in extended abstracts of chapters for consideration for inclusion in the first issue of the HSRC’s new annual publication Africa Focus. The HSRC has identified the need for a platform for critical and innovative debates around themes that will contribute to the dissemination of the views of African scholars among research, policy and academic institutions, civil society organizations and governments, both in Africa and abroad. The series’ unique trait and contribution will be its ability to illuminate African voices on policy and to chart emerging and new paths and contexts in the production of research knowledge relevant to Africa’s developmental aspirations.
