Title:The Gondwana project: interactions between African and Latin American countries
Author:Valenzuela, Juan J.
Periodical:Nigerian Journal of International Studies
Geographic terms:Africa

Subject:foreign policy
Abstract:'Gondwana' is the name given by the Austrian geologist Edward Suess (1885) to the supposed southern continent that included the major portions of South America, Africa, peninsular India, Australia and the Antarctica. The Gondwana Project is a study of contemporary political and economic interactions between African and Latin American countries. It aims at isolating the inducements and deterrents affecting these interactions. An important goal of the Project is to contribute to ideas of potential co-operation, as well as policy recommendations for this purpose. The relevance of the Project comes from the importance of the topic itself, the possibility of advancing theoretical formulations in an area which is only recently being explored - the relationships between small and middle-sized countries - and finally, from its contribution in terms of methodology in the analysis or international relations. These three elements are related to a fourth one: the opening of research trends available to students at Ahmadu Bello University. Bibl., notes, tables.
