Volume 27.4 of our SAIIA Journal covers a number of diverse topics in governance and international relations in Africa.

This issue covered a range of topics, including an article focused on how state-business relations negatively affect South Africa’s growth equilibrium by Alan Hirsch. Catherine Grant Makokera and Mary-Beth Makokera’s research article discusses South Africa’s trade policy in the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic while Romola Adeola looks at how the Kampala Convention provides protection for people who have been internally displaced within Africa due to xenophobia. Ingo Henneberg considers how international contact groups affect international conflict management. The issue includes six book reviews – two of which are focused on Sino-African relations.
