About Us

We are a group of scholar-activists from Africa, Europe and the US who have begun tackling the question of economic and political self-determination on the African continent with a focus on the constraining role of money and finance. Going forward, we are hoping to internationalize further and build a movement in the spirit of international solidarity working towards the abolition of global inequalities.
