The South African Institute of International Affairs (SAIIA) is pleased to announce the launch of the Africa Portal at http://www.africaportal.org/.
The Africa Portal is an online knowledge resource offering researchers and opinion leaders a forum to share their insights on Africa and publish their work on pressing areas of concern to policymakers and the public. It aims to fill the gap in accessibility to research and information on policy issues on the continent.
A key feature of the Africa Portal is the online library collection, holding over 2,500 books, journals and digital documents relating to African policy issues. The entire online repository is open access and available for free full-text download. A portion of the digital documents housed in the library have been digitised for the first time as an undertaking of the Africa Portal project.
The project is a collaborative undertaking between SAIIA, the Centre for International Governance Innovation in Canada, and Makerere University in Uganda.
