Chapter Summary

The country-specific articles cover domestic politics, foreign affairs and socioeconomic developments in the states of sub-Saharan Africa during the calendar year under review. While one recognises the impossibility of finding fully objective indicators for the relative importance of each of the states covered by the Yearbook, the length of the country-specific articles aims to reflect the approximate weight of each country. Further overviews summarise general continental developments, European-African relations and the United Nations and Africa. The Yearbook is based on scholarly work, but oriented towards a wider target readership sphere of development cooperation and business people. Without forcing the individual contributions too much into a straitjacket, the volume is primarily concerned with providing factual (though not necessarily neutral) information. Each issue, in focusing almost exclusively on developments during the particular calendar year, provides a completely fresh annual overview of events and thereby adds to the cumulative record of ongoing developments.

Keywords: Africa; domestic politics; European-African relations; socioeconomic developments; United Nations; Yearbook
