Africans on the continent must begin to more vigorously find their own voices and raise them in the most powerful corridors of global public policy-oriented social sciences and humanities knowledge creation, production, and applications.
In this critical sense, it is time for continental Africans to organise, mobilise, institutionalise and transform to do their own thing. They should be heard and listened to and respected as global knowledge brokers.
It is high time Africans in policy-oriented sciences and humanities have their theories and concepts globally embraced and utilised for the betterment of humankind. This advocacy points to knowledge transformation being hotly discussed these days in African public spheres, such as decolonisation, indigenisation, and liberation of African knowledge in the policy sciences and humanities.
