African Arguments top article of the year: a competition

We’ve published a lot of articles this year on African Arguments across the 6 blogs, taking in the most important events and trends affecting the continent over the past 12 months.

From Libya to South Africa via Somalia, Kenya, Congo, Mali, Nigeria, Angola, Zimbabwe and many more, we aim to be a pan-African site, showcasing a wealth of opinion and analysis from inside and outside the continent.

To celebrate African Arguments Online’s first full year in existence we are running a competition to find out the most popular article we’ve published. To help you, we have shortlisted 10 articles, which you can read by following the links below, and then vote on using the survey at the bottom of this article. You can only vote once.

The author of the winning article will receive a free one year membership of the RAS.

Voting closes at midnight on Wed 19th December. We’ll announce the winner on Thurs 20th.
