Government and rural development in East Africa : essays on political penetration by Lionel Cliffe( Book )

10 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 312 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The gestation period of this collection has been lengthy even by academic stan­ dards. Some of our long-suffering contributors prepared their original drafts for a workshop held in Nairobi in 1967, and although they have all up-dated their contributions they are still essentially reporting on research conducted in the late 1960s. However, we feel that their various findings and analyses of the issues they respectively treat have a continuing validity in our comprehension of the problem of rural development. Other contributions reporting on more recent work have been incorporated at different times since, most of them not commissioned especially for this symposium but all adding something to our understanding of the problem. The slow accumulation of material which makes up this fmal collection parallels an evolution in our own collective thinking, if indeed not that of most students of 'development' over the past decade. The progression has not been towards fmal clarification of the complex and changing East African realities, nor towards formulation of an accepted model for their analysis; rather, it has been marked by the questioning of the initial, somewhat simplistic assumptions with which some of us started out and a continuing debate and widening polar­ ization of views about the significance of that process of government 'pene­ tration' of the rural areas which is our focus, about the positive or negative value of 'development' policies in East Africa and, indeed, about the appropri­ ate theoretical approaches to the study of 'development' in general

Post-conflict Eritrea : prospects for reconstruction and development( Book )

9 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book presents research findings on key areas of postwar reconstruction in Eritrea, a country that has emerged from prolonged and profound conflict. The research was undertaken as collective exercise by participants in the War-torn Societies Project (WSP). This is an innovative action-research project set up in 1994, whose main aim was to help local and international actors in four pilot countries to learn about the role of international assistance and about peace-building in general."--Jacket
Social research and policy in the development arena : critical encounters by Martin Doornbos( )

8 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 153 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author analyzes the research-policy nexus in development studies, highlighting reciprocal orientations and interactions between the domains of social research and of policy and politics. The study deals with instances where these domains are complementary and geared towards common objectives, but also with others marked by opposing premises. The underlying idea is not to arrive at any 'one best formula', as the interests and objectives of research and researchers on the one hand, and those of politics and policy-makers on the other, are often vastly different and based on contrasting rationales. Instead, Martin Doornbos aims at illustrating potential sources of tension between these respective spheres, tracing the silent battles waged between them while also recognizing instances where research has played a meaningful role vis-à-vis policy - for instance, in bridging informational gaps towards policy deliberation or in assessing policy outcomes. This book therefore seeks to provide a better understanding of the conditions determining conflict and cooperation between policy and social research.--

The Rwenzururu Movement in Uganda : struggling for recognition by Martin Doornbos( )

4 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book provides a comprehensive account and analysis of the Rwenzururu movement in Western Uganda. The movement began in the 1960s in the Rwenzori region of Toro District, and was a protest by the minority Bakonzo and Baamba ethnic groups against their continued discrimination and incorporation in the Batoro-dominated kingdom-district. In the course of the years this movement experienced various significant transformations, and in the end came to demand recognition of Rwenzururu's claimed semi-traditional kingship within Uganda. Martin Doornbos illuminates how the Rwenzururu came to life. He documents and analyses the transformations that the movement has undergone, and shows how the Ugandan government responded to, and eventually accepted, the movement while igniting continuing enmity and violence in the process."--Provided by publisher
