CAE Working Paper Series

 CAE Working Paper Series - Textile factory - Energy - Floriculture

Cutting-edge research on African Economies

The series provides an outlet for work at the early stage of the research process in order to disseminate findings to a wide audience and stimulate debates prior to the publication of research findings in academic journals and books.

The working papers present on-going research from the projects of Centre of African Economies (CAE) researchers and scholars outside of Roskilde University. We encourage submissions from scholars studying African economies from different economic schools of thought. We also accept papers that draw on approaches from economic sociology, economic geography, economic anthropology and political economy, as well as ones that employ multi and inter-disciplinary perspectives.


Working paper submissions should be in English and formatted in Harvard citation style, and are typically between 8-12,000 words (all inclusive). Further guidelines on how to format your submission (pdf).

Papers should be submitted to Prof. Lindsay Whitfield at

All submissions undergo a double blind peer review process before being accepted for publication. Working papers are published electronically only.
