Background and Focus: Research Africa Network is an international group of scholars interested in Africa’s development. It is organized in a network whose intention is to promote, disseminate, and stimulate high quality research in economic, management, and development studies.
The seeds of Research Africa Network were planted by Professor John Kuada during the 5th Aalborg University Conference whose theme was Finding Solutions to the New Challenges of Internationalization held at Comwell Rebild Bakker, Aalborg-Denmark 4-6 June 2014. It was agreed by the inaugural group that there is lack of research on Africa made by African researchers. It was also agreed that it is important to strengthen research capacities and North-South partnerships.
