China-Africa, South Sudan, Sociolinguistics

This issue of Global Cooperation Quarterly takes a critical look at current developments on the African continent. Christof Hartmann explores issues of African agency in the context of Chinese development strategies. Katrin Seidel analyses the local limitations of international rule-of-law engagements in South Sudan. Other contributions combine personal impressions from fieldwork with reflections on research on struggles over land in Mozambique, international politics and the rights of LGBT people in Africa as well as the situation of African diaspora in Austria. The African Kaleidoscope concludes with a report by Martin Wolf on the recent Africa Film Festival on ‘Fundamentalism and Migration’ in Cologne.
