Abstract:This special issue addresses some of the critical transitions associated with Africa's current situation. The 'Emerging Africa' narrative is marked by perceptions and policy interactions around Africa which are no longer informed by violence and corruption but by the opportunities associated with the continent, due to remarkable transformations at the continental and global levels over the past decade. Contributions: Africa in international relations: the frontier as concept and metaphor (Daniel C. Bach); The ambivalent impact of commodities: structural change or status quo in Sub-Saharan Africa? (Alice N. Sindzingre); Nigeria as an emerging economy? Making sense of expectations (David U. Enweremadu); The limits to Statebuilding for peace in Africa (Devon Curtis); The exceptional State in Africa: image management in Sino-African relations (Shogo Suzuki); Emerging powers in Africa: is Brazil any different? (Lyal White); The EU and Africa since the Lisbon summit of 2007: continental drift or widening cracks? (Damien Helly); The rush for land in Africa: resource grabbing or green revolution? (Ward Anseeuw). [ASC Leiden abstract]
