Preparing a Special Issue for African Security at Nottingham Trent University 14 Jan 2013

Following our workshop in June 2012 at Wits Rural Facility near Krugerpark in South Africa we have decided to relocate to Europe in order to prepare our papers for a special issue at African Security. The dominating theme was policy convergence in the security field and its different forms and types which can be observed on the African continent. The half day gathering proofed to be essential in carving out conceptual clarifications and brought papers together. Its promising to be an exciting special issue to be published in December 2013.
