April 2017: Afara Academic Publishing - A concept for the support of knowledge economies in Africa and the MENA region

The idea to establish Afara (in Yoruba: "bridge") is based on our experience in international projects and on numerous conversations and discussions with academics in Africa and the MENA region. It was also triggered by the observations of the German academic research culture! Generally most of the publications we use originate from well-known scholars in the Western hemisphere, who are disconnected from local research and lack empirical data from the regional perspective. However, it would make sense to use these, if we could access them! Both aspects combined created our social initiative model. We hope it will have an impact.
