Abstract:This briefing focuses on new philanthropy or capitalist philanthropy. This new form of philanthropy has emerged on the back of neoliberal economic globalisation, which has invigorated wealth concentration in the hands of a few 'super-rich' individuals and families emanating from both the global south and the global north. Super-rich capitalists who have become globally known for active involvement in philanthropy through charities and their own charitablefoundations are denoted here as capitalist philanthropists. The article discusses this phenomenon in the African context. Bibliogr., notes, ref. [ASC Leiden abstract]
