Abstract:This edited volume has its origins in the 3rd European Conference on African Studies which was held in Leipzig from 4 to 7 June 2009. Its aim was to take stock of the impact of the spatial turn in the social sciences on African studies. The African continent provides ample evidence for complex processes of deterritorialization (migration, globalization, sub-nationalisms) and reterritorialization (new regionalisms, processes of bordering, etc.). An introductory chapter by Ulf Engel and Paul Nugent is followed by seven contributions: Actors, places, regions, and global forces: an essay on the spatial history of Africa since 1700 (Allen M. Howard); State, region and space in Africa (Fredrik Söderbaum and Ian Taylor); Siamese twin towns and unitary concepts in border inequality (David B. Coplan on Lesotho/South Africa as compared to US-Mexico); Respacing for peace, security and sustainable development: the African Union Border Programme in European comparative historical perspective (Anthony I. Asiwaju); Staying put in moving sands: the stepwise migration process of sub-Saharan African migrants heading north (Joris Schapendonk); Reshaping Congolese Statehood in the midst of crisis and transition (Timothy Raeyemaekers and Koen Vlassenroot); The neo-tribal competitive order in the borderland of Egypt and Libya (Thomas Hüsken).
