Abstract

Purpose – In this introduction paper, we aim to first highlight the different intellectual discourses and contributions to the ‘special issue’ on critical perspectives on international business in Africa. We also introduce the details of the contributions included within this special issue.

Design/methodology/approach – The paper briefly presents Africa as a fertile but under researched context for international business scholarship notwithstanding the growing number of contributions in recent times. This is followed by a brief review and discussion of each paper in this special issue.

Findings – The paper captures the findings and contributions of the papers featured in this issue.

Originality/value – The paper sets the context in which the other papers that comprise this special issue can be situated. Moreover, the paper engages with key issues and challenges relevant to African business and offers critical perspectives on the theory and practice of international business within Africa.
