About 'Conjonctures'

Conjonctures de l’Afrique centrale is the yearly publication of the Belgian centre for expertise on Central Africa (CRE-AC), of the Great Lakes of Africa Centre (GLAC) at the Institute of Development Policy (IOB), University of Antwerp, and of the Royal Museum for Central Africa (MRAC), in collaboration with the Catholic University of Louvain (UCL). It is published in MRAC’s series Cahiers Africains by L’Harmattan (Paris). Each edition is coordinated by a team of three editors of IOB, UCL and CRE-AC respectively.

The publication offers a series of high-quality scientific articles – in French or in English. Four countries are directly targeted: DRC, Burundi, Rwanda and Uganda. Conjonctures de l’Afrique centrale offers an in-depth analysis of contemporary dynamics of political, economic and social life in Central Africa. Through this analysis, the relevance and impact of such dynamics on sustainable development and the lives of citizens in the Central African region can be assessed. The articles situate current events and contemporary evolutions within a historical perspective and frame them within the international academic literature.

Conjonctures de l'Afrique centrale is the result of the merger between Conjonctures Congolaises (published since 2011) and the Annuaire de l'Afrique des Grands Lacs (published since 1997).
