Aims and Scope

The aim of the Journal of Namibian Studies - History Politics Culture (ISSN print 1863-5954; ISSN online 2197-5523) is to make available to an academic audience around the world scholarly work and original research of high standards in English. The journal is inter- and transdisciplinary and covers the humanities and the social sciences. As such it seeks to serve as an interface between local and international Namibianist scholars.
