Abstract:

Although there are signs of intensifying regional and pan-African networks among knowledge workers in Africa, there are also continuing barriers, and even a sense of ‘Afro-phobia’ among Africans engaging in international collaboration. Many African scholars still have a preference for nurturing linkages with European and North American, and recently also Asian colleagues and conferences, and they neglect potential relationships nearby, in Africa itself. What are the recent trends, and how realistic is a pan-African knowledge network.
