Welcome to the first edition of the St Andrews Africa Summit Review! The Review is the editorial arm of the St Andrews Africa Summit, and this edition intends to supplement and extend the conference’s discussions. We are a student-led publication, aiming to advance dialogue about African affairs among the St Andrews community and beyond.

The articles featured in this edition are in keeping with this year’s theme: Leadership and Governance in Africa. A broad range of topics has been covered, and they span different corners of the continent, ranging from discussions about Boko Haram’s effects on Nigeria’s leadership, to details about the student protests in South Africa.

We hope that you will find the work exhibited both engaging and thought provoking.

Our motto: Africa is a continent on the rise; join the conversation.
