STREAM: ‘The Political Economy of Development in Africa: Domesticating the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

The domestication of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) has become a key issue and action across the globe. Yet, in many African countries, the economic and political processes that guide the use and influence of the SDGs in the National Development Plans are still yet to be understood.

This stream welcomes theoretical and empirical contributions that examine the following: the use and influence of the SDGs in African policy settings, context-based issues in the domestication process, influence of dominant international concerns and key stakeholder interests in shaping the domestication process of SDG target adoption, and papers that examine emerging or existing governance structures which act as barriers and facilitators to the adoption of the SDGs in National Development Plans.
