Abstract:This special issue of the African Sociological Review derives from a research project that aimed to conduct a theoretical and empirical analysis of South African investment in Africa in the postapartheid period, challenging the notion of host countries as passive recipients of South African economic intervention. It seeks to understand how internal class contestations shape the way that South African companies conduct their activities in foreign African locales.
