African Arguments - Breaking down the news
African Arguments is a pan-African platform for news, investigation and opinion. We seek to analyze issues facing the continent, investigate the stories that matter, and amplify a diversity of voices.
While big news organizations break the news, African Arguments breaks down the news. We do this through our extensive network of journalists, researchers and commentators. We examine the major events making the headlines – adding much-needed nuance, complexity and context – while at the same time shining a light on under-covered issues some would rather were kept in the dark. We cover topics related to politics, economics, gender, the environment, culture, social affairs and much more.
African Arguments also provides a crucial and unique platform for predominantly African writers to reach a predominantly African, and international, audience. Over two-thirds of our authors are of African descent, as are the majority of our readers.
African Arguments also hosts the sub-section Debating Ideas, which offers more academic discussions around the African Arguments book series.
