Since 1974 the Review of African Political Economy has provided radical analysis of trends, issues and social processes in Africa, adopting a broadly materialist interpretation of change. Established by a group of scholars and activists in the UK and Africa, the journal is committed to understanding projects of radical transformation...Together with the print journal, ROAPE Online seeks to develop a critique of the existing balance of class and social forces in African political economy as a vital part of the project of radical political, environmental and economic transformation. ROAPEā€™s online platform keeps the struggles for racial, gender and economic equality at the centre of our focus. We do not seek to become a substitute for African voices, but a sounding board and platform for them.
