Überwachung in Afrika

Die African Studies Review der African Studies Asscociation hat gerade eine Ausgabe zu Surveillance in Africa veröffentlicht.

Volume 59 – Issue 2 – September 2016

Angesichts der Dominanz westlicher Sichtweisen und westlicher Forschungsfoci, ist so ein Unterfangen mehr als überfällig. Ich habe mal den Inhalt aufgeführt.
