Thought Leadership in Africa

Special issue call for papers from European Business Review

Guest Editors:

Daniël J. Petzer of the Gordon Institute of Business Science of the University of Pretoria, South Africa

Stefanie Kühn of the University of Stellenbosch, South Africa


Africa presents a rich mix of diverse societal, political and environmental conditions and challenges. There is, however, no doubt that the continent offers attractive investment and growth opportunities to many businesses from across the world. Insights into the African continent from a scholarly perspective remain limited and research in most if not all management disciplines is still in its infancy when compared to other continents, providing attractive opportunities to scholars to grow the knowledge base on Africa and to stimulate and promote thought leadership in Africa.
For this special issue, you are invited to submit all contributions related to management disciplines that focus on stimulating and promoting thought leadership in Africa. Submissions from all business disciplines are welcome including, but not limited to, Marketing, Management, Accounting, Finance, International Business, Information Systems Management, Entrepreneurship, and Management Science.

The emphasis will be on scholars from all over the world conducting research within an African context. The issue will aim to publish excellent quality scholarly research in the different business disciplines focusing on Africa while the issue will also feature opinion pieces from foremost African thought leaders.
