    • Africa Confidential is one of the longest-established specialist publications on Africa, with a considerable reputation for being first with in-depth news and analysis on significant political, economic and security developments across the continent.

      Why ‘confidential‘?
      This continent-wide, on-the-ground coverage enables us to identify and monitor upcoming issues long before they are picked up by the general media – and analyse their real significance for our readers. What’s more, all our contributors write for us on the basis of strict anonymity, a principle that was established from the outset in 1960 to ensure writers’ personal safety in the turbulent, early years of post-colonial African independence.  Hence the newsletter’s title.

      Who reads Africa Confidential?
      Today, Africa Confidential is read fortnightly by a wide range of institutions and individuals around the world, all of them united in their need for timely, accurate and incisive analysis of contemporary African developments.
