Africa Briefing is a bi-monthly magazine designed to provide news, incisive analysis and trenchant opinions on Africa to Africans at home and abroad, and the wider global audience that has a committed interest in the continent’s political, economic and social developments.
Since our inception seven years ago, Africa Briefing has become a veritable source of information on Africa. More people, like you, are reading and supporting Africa Briefing’s independent journalism than ever before. And unlike many news organisations, we made the choice to keep our reporting open for all, regardless of where they live or what they can afford to pay.
Africa Briefing continues engaging with the most critical issues of our time – from the escalating climate catastrophe to widespread inequality to the influence of big tech on our lives. At a time when factual information is a necessity, we believe that each of us, around the world, deserves access to accurate reporting with integrity at its heart.
Our editorial independence means we set our own agenda and voice our own opinions. Our journalism is free from commercial and political bias and not influenced by billionaire owners or shareholders. This means we can give a voice to those less heard, explore where others turn away, and rigorously challenge those in power.
We therefore have a small favour to ask. We hope you will consider supporting us today. We need your support to keep delivering quality journalism that’s open and independent. Every reader contribution, however big or small, is so valuable. Support us from as low as $10 and it only takes a minute.
