“While many groups receive more limelight for their analysis, advocacy and research… it is Justice Africa that consistently provides some of the more insightful ‘on-the-ground’ coverage of the Motherland, and all from a Pan-Africanist worldview.”


Justice Africa has a strong and growing component of education, research and publishing.

African Arguments

African Arguments is a collaborative publishing initiative between Justice Africa, the Royal African Society, the International African Institute andZed Books.

Aimed at the growing number of students and general readers who want to know more about the continent, these books intend to highlight many of the longer-term strategic as well as immediate political issues confronting the African continent. They get to the heart of why Africa is the way it is and how it is changing. The books are scholarly but engaged, substantive and topical.

Seminars on African Issues

In coordination with the International African Institute and African higher education institutes, Justice Africa is helping to convene seminars on relevant issues in Africa, for example:

  • Local peacemaking in Africa: comparative perspectives
  • The media in Africa
  • Islamic humanitarianism in Africa

These seminars aim to combine academic rigour with relevance to the challenges of policymaking, and to bring together local, national and international perspectives.

Providing opportunities for scholars and activists to develop their research and publishing activities

Justice Africa provides an environment in which African and non-African scholars and activists can develop their study programmes. It is open to developing research proposals, securing funds and finding publishers. As an example, it is facilitating the publication of a book on the Nuba of Sudan, produced by the Nuba community themselves.
