Palgrave Studies of Sustainable Business in Africa

Published in partnership with Palgrave Macmillan

This series aims to provide a global perspective and understanding of international business as a context for sustainable business practices in Africa. Titles provide new methodologies through which goods and services are produced and managed using sustainable business practices in Africa, as well as a sound grounding in the terminology of sustainable business. In doing so, this series develops a number of tools of analysis in order to conceptualize various business and management theories that can be used to address the challenges posed to the development of African businesses. Adopting and adapting western business and management theories, it provides a practical application of various theoretical and practical frameworks in order to develop new ways of doing business in Africa.

Featuring case studies, ground-breaking research and new conceptual approaches, the Palgrave Studies of Sustainable Business in Africa series includes contributions from a range of African scholars and leaders of major African academic and research institutions, as well as scholars from around the world. The merging of these perspectives will examine how the future of African business and management should be shaped in order to better address the needs of African business development both now, and for future generations.
