Debating Ideas is a new section that aims to reflect the values and editorial ethos of the African Arguments book series, publishing engaged, often radical, scholarship, original and activist writing from within the African continent and beyond. It will offer debates and engagements, contexts and controversies, and reviews and responses flowing from the African Arguments books.
The Horn of Africa is often seen as a zone of conflict and human rights abuses, but it is also the site of civic activism, nonviolent revolutions and rising feminist movements.
In our first Civil Society Dialogue in the Horn of Africa podcast, Rachel Ibreck (Goldsmiths, University of London) hosts a discussion with an all-women cast of activists and researchers reflecting on an African feminist agenda for the region.
