Call for contributions Politics and minorities in Africa Nova Collectanea Africana - CSAS 2012 issue
Call for Papers Date:
Nova Collectanea Africana, an edited book series on “Minorities in Africa” promoted by the Centro di Studi Africani in Sardegna (CSAS), is pleased to launch a call for chapters for the 2012 issue.
This issue will focus on the theme: Politics and Minorities in Africa. Particular attention will be paid to elections and political representation in post-colonial African contexts.
The 2012 issue of Nova Collectanea Africana aims to continue to investigate minorities in the African state in a broader perspective, not just focusing on exclusion or discrimination. Politics and Minorities in particular welcomes historical analyses of how minorities organize and challenge the political context, their role and action during political elections, how they organize to influence politics and electoral results and their relation with majority groups and elites.
We particularly welcome proposals covering these specific themes:
•Political parties and movements: political representation
•Political ban referred to the constitution of parties and mouvements espressed by minorities
•Political programmes and propaganda
•Governement, civil and political rights, constitutions
