Abstract:This special issue edited by Alexander Beresford and Hannah Cross is concerned with the study of labour within the context of the increasingly polarized debate about the current trajectories of growth, economic development and social justice in Africa. In particular, it examines how the politics of organized labour have adjusted to new international pressures. Contributions: The internationalization of labour politics in Africa (Nick Bernards ); Sellers on the street: the human infrastructure of the mobile phone network in Kigali, Rwanda (Laura Mann, Elie Nzayisenga); 'Development', profiles and prospects: labour in Kenya's outsourced call centres (Alex Free); Making a virtue out of a necessity: promoting access to antiretroviral treatment by valorizing fair markets and consumer rights in post-apartheid South Africa (Lauren Paremoer).
