Africa: Review 2011 with AfricaFocus

AfricaFocus Bulletin
Dec 30, 2011 (111230)
(Reposted from sources cited below)

Editor's Note

As regular readers know, AfricaFocus averages between 6 and 7 issues a month (a total of 77 this year). So there is no way that it can cover the full range of issues and countries around the continent. Nor am I inclined to venture into the popular attempt to name "the top ten issues" of the year. But I am confident you will agree that AfricaFocus has provided you and other readers with a wide range of useful analyses this year.

As I take the opportunity to think about the past year, and about priorities for next year, I will be reviewing the coverage for myself and asking what was well-covered, what neglected, and what may be coming in the months ahead that needs more attention.

The links below are to enable you to take a similar look back at topics and countries of particular interest to you, for your own purposes, and, if you wish, to pass on comments or suggestions to me for the coming year, at africafocus@igc.org

You can check out the issues for the year in chronological order, or select particular topics or regions.

Best wishes for the coming year to all AfricaFocus readers, and particular thanks to the 97 of you who have sent in voluntary subscription payments to support AfricaFocus work so far this year. (Hopefully there are a few still in the mail to bring it up to 100!) If you haven't yet, and want to add your support, there are links for secure on-line payment through Paypal or Google Checkout, and a form to print out to send with a check or money order at
http://www.africafocus.org/support.php

Or you can just send the check to AfricaFocus Bulletin,3509 Connecticut Ave., NW, PMB 540, Washington, DC 20008-2470, USA.

P.S. AfricaFocus Bulletin will resume regular publication in late January. In the meantime updates are available on http://www.africafocus.org,
http://www.facebook.com/pages/AfricaFocus/101867576407, and http://twitter.com/#!/africa_focus.

I have also just created a Google Plus page at https://plus.google.com/115330755907469805695. If you are on Google Plus, please add this page to your circles. Assuming that enough people sign up for that in January, I will begin more frequent updates on Google Plus as well, probably in late January or February, depending on how easy it is to automate coordination among Facebook, Twitter, and Google Plus (I'm looking into that).
