Ex-ante impact assessment of likely consequences of graduation of Republic of Equatorial Guinea from the least developed country category
The Committee for Development Policy considered Equatorial Guinea eligible for graduation for the first time in 2006, which triggered the preparation of this ex-ante impact assessment report. The country has experienced remarkable growth fueled by the development of the hydrocarbon sector and reached a relatively high level of per capita income. Official development finance inflows are negligible as a share of GDP while it is unlikely that necessary technical assistance support will be withdrawn due to graduation. Exports-- dominated by fuels-- already enter major markets at zero tariffs under the Most Favoured Nation treatment. With the exception of a few support measures, such as United Nations-related travel benefits, the country seems to benefit little from its LDC status. Graduation from the category will likely have minimal impact.
This article seeks to unpack why it is that human rights has emerged as an issue in critical analyses of Sino-African relations. Whilst not seeking to minimise some of the real concerns and issues, we aim to contextualise the motives of much of the critique, particularly when it emanates from Western sources close to government. In short, it is asserted that material interests have long tended to dictate the capitalist West’s response to the issue of human rights when it relates to China and in this regard, Sino-African ties and the attendant expressed alarm over human rights is no exception. It is suggested that concern over competition, particularly over energy resources, has reintroduced human rights in to the diplomatic discourse.
A pre-intervention study of malaria vector abundance in Rio Muni, Equatorial Guinea: their role in malaria transmission and the incidence of insecticide resistance alleles.
Following the success of the malaria control intervention on the island of Bioko, malaria control by the use of indoor residual spraying (IRS) and long-lasting insecticide-treated nets (LLITN) was extended to Rio Muni, on the mainland part of Equatorial Guinea. This manuscript reports on the malaria vectors present and the incidence of insecticide resistant alleles prior to the onset of the programme.

An Introduction to the Literature of Equatorial Guinea: Between Colonialism and Dictatorship (review)
ʺMarvin A. Lewis is the author of a long list of books dealing with Afro-Latin American literature, a field in which he has pioneered and demonstrated unprecedented knowledge and scholarship. His latest book, An Introduction to the Literature of Equatorial Guinea, is his first incursion in the field of African literature, and to be more specific, African literature of Spanish expression. It is a pioneering study of the development of the literature of Equatorial Guinea, the only Spanish-speaking country in sub-Saharan Africa with a literature written in Spanish.ʺ
