Historical trajectory of African statehood across space and periods

This research group explores the historical conceptualization and interpretation of empirical realities of statehood in Africa across a range of periods. The re-visitation of the ideas and realities of statehood in Africa is guided by an appraisal of how has evolution in conceptualization and interpretation of statehood over specific periods shaped approaches to peace, security and development? And what factors differentiate the experiences of statehood in Africa from other places? Some of the periods to be examined might include, the pre-colonial; colonial; (second) industrial revolution; the Second World War and post-colonial and ”post” independence periods.
