Abstract

This special issue is unique in the sense that it sets out to engage on issues within the gambit of African diplomacy, a theme that deserves constant focus given its centrality in Africa's quest for influence in global affairs. Against a backdrop of Africa's marginalisation in knowledge production and dissemination in what appears to be an increasingly unilateralist world, this issue is topical and timely. This is the gap in the conversation on diplomacy that the SARChI Chair in African Diplomacy and Foreign Policy at the University of Johannesburg seeks to fill in supporting this special issue, and it is the context in which the authors of the articles were invited to contribute their analyses in taking the discussion on African diplomacy forward.

Hierdie spesiale uitgawe van die Joernaal is uniek, aangesien daar beoog word om vraagstukke binne die raamwerk van Afrika-diplomasie aan te spreek; 'n tema wat volgehoue aandag vereis in die lig van Afrika se soeke na seggenskap in universele aangeleenthede. Gesien teen die agtergrond van Afrika se marginalisering van kennis en die verspreiding daarvan in 'n toenemende eensydige wêreld, is hierdieonderwerp aktueel en relevant. Dit is die leemte in die gesprek oor diplomasie wat die SARCHi Chair in African Diplomacy and Foreign Policy aan die Universiteit van Johannesburg wil oorbrug by wyse van hierdie spesiale uitgawe; vandaar die uitnodiging aan die outeurs om deur hulle ontleding die bespreking van Afrika diplomasie verder te voer.
