Although Germany has been a major international player in
Africa ever since its readmission to international politics
after 1955, suprisingly little has been written about its
policy vis-à-vis Africa – and even less reliable knowledge
has been established. „Germany’s Africa policy revisited“
firstly reviews Germany’s relations with the African
continent over the past decades. Secondly, it addresses some
crucial factual gaps which characterize the state of
research so far. Thirdly, it discusses some of the
theoretical and methodological undercurrents of past
research. The contributors to this volume represent a mix of
academics and practitioners. Their interest and personal
involvement in the subject is longstanding

With contributions by Ulf Engel, Ernst Hillebrand, Rolf Hofmeier, Robert
Kappel, Stephan Klingebiel, Volkmar Köhler, Reinhart
Kössler, Stefan Mair, Henning Melber, Andreas Mehler, Peter Molt, Volker
Vinnai, and Jürgen H. Wolff.
