ROAPE provides radical analysis of trends, issues and social processes in Africa, adopting a broadly materialist interpretation of change. We pay particular attention to the political economy of inequality, exploitation and oppression, and to struggles against them, whether driven by global forces or local ones. ROAPE – and roape.net – sustain a critical analysis of the nature of power and the state in Africa in the context of capitalist globalisation.
Roape.net is run by the ROAPE international collective. For roape.net readers our publisher, Taylor and Francis, have provided free access to our current Briefings & Debates. Briefings are generally short, topical and informative pieces, including documents, with a ‘stop press’ policy for urgent items, while Debates take a position on a controversial topic, either engaging with a previous piece or inviting response. In addition we have an archive which consists of downloadable files of hundreds of articles published by ROAPE since 1974 but that are more than seven years old. Our academic journal is published quarterly by Taylor and Francis. All NEW ARTICLES are available on the Taylor and Francis website. We encourage users of roape.net to access Briefings & Debates and our archive, by clicking ‘register’ or by logging in on this page.
