Child migration in Africa by Iman Hashim( )

5 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 1,474 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Child Migration in Africa explores the mobility of children without their parents within West Africa. Drawing on the experiences of children from rural Burkina Faso and Ghana, the book provides rich material on the circumstances of children's voluntary migration and their experiences of it. Part of the groundbreaking Africa Now series, Child Migration in Africa is an important and timely contribution to an under-researched area

7 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 1,047 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Kenya : the struggle for a new constitutional order by Nordiska Afrikainstitutet( )

6 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 588 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The aftermath of recent Kenyan elections has been marred by violence and an apparent crisis in democratic governance, with the negotiated settlement resulting from the 2007 election bringing into sharp focus longstanding problems of state and society. The broader reform process has involved electoral, judicial and security-sector reforms, among others, which in turn revolve around constitutional reforms. Written by a gathering of eminent specialists, this highly original volume interrogates the roots and impact of the 2010 constitution. It explains why reforms were blocked in the past but were successful this time around, and explores the scope for their implementation in the face of continued resistance by powerful groups. In doing so, the book demonstrates that the Kenyan experience carries significance well past its borders, speaking to debates surrounding social justice and national cohesion across the African continent and beyond
The writer in modern Africa by African-Scandinavian Writers' Conference( Book )

The rise of Africa's middle class : myths, realities and critical engagements by Henning Melber( )

4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 482 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Across Africa, a burgeoning middle class has become the poster child for the 'Africa rising' narrative. Ambitious, aspirational and increasingly affluent, this group is said to embody the values and hopes of the new Africa, with international bodies ranging from the United Nations Development Programme to the World Bank regarding them as important agents of both economic development and democratic change. This narrative, however, obscures the complex and often ambiguous role that this group actually plays in African societies. Bringing together economists, political scientists, anthropologists and development experts, and spanning a variety of case studies from across the continent, this collection provides a much-needed corrective to the received wisdom within development circles, and provides a fresh perspective on social transformations in contemporary Africa."
Re-thinking sexualities in Africa by Signe Arnfred( Book )

11 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and held by 469 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume sets out to investigate critically existing lines of thought about sexuality in Africa, while also creating space for alternative approaches. Issues of colonial and contemporary discourses on 'African sexuality' and on 'female genital mutilation' are discussed, as are issues of female agency and of feminist engagement with HIV/AIDS. The volume contributes to current efforts to re-think sexualities in the light of feminist, queer and postcolonial theory."--Jacket
Women and the remaking of politics in Southern Africa : negotiating autonomy, incorporation, and representation by Gisela G Geisler( Book )

6 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 426 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book traces the history of women's political involvement in Southern Africa, in anti-colonial struggles and against apartheid, analyzes the post-colonial outcomes and examines the strategies that have been employed by women's movements to gain a foothold in politics. It looks in detail at the experiences of women both in and with the women's wings of political parties through the early years of independence up to today, discusses the successes and failures of national machinery for the advancement of women and analyses the activities of women's movements over time. Extensive material from Zambia, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Namibia and South Africa is compared and juxtaposed, as women politicians and women's movements learned from each others' experiences over time. The study also critically addresses the uneasy relationship between the women's movements and the state, and between women activists and women politicians as they have negotiated cooptation, integration and exclusion. Based on an extensive literature review and innumerable interviews with women politicians and activists as well as fieldwork, and spanning half a century and half a continent, the historical depth and geographical spread of the study put it in a class of its own--Del editor
