Africa Up Close

Reaching an international audience, Africa Up Close draws on contributions from experts, policymakers, and practitioners to present current, relevant, and digestible analyses of developments on the continent. Since its launch in 2013, Africa Up Close has been sponsored by Carnegie Corporation of New York through the Wilson Center Africa Program's Southern Voices Network for Peacebuilding.
