Polish-Soviet Conference on ‘Prospects for African Development’

Four of ROAPE's editors were invited to Warsaw in May 1987 to attend a conference of Africanists from Poland and the Soviet Union organised by a fifth editor, Piotr Dutkewiez. It provided a fascinating opportunity to enter a dialogue with fellow specialists and to get some measure of the scholarship on Africa in the two countries. It was an honour not only for us but also for the Review to be so recognised.
