Governance trends in West Africa, 2006 : a synthesis report by Adebayo O Olukoshi( )

10 editions published in 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,344 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The West African sub-region has a distinctive history as one of the most dynamic parts of the African continent. Forged out of a long, often contradictory, always contested trajectory of state formation, dissolution, and recomposition that has been accompanied at different stages by widespread population movements, the sub-region has, inevitably, grappled with a wide range of core, enduring governance questions. These questions have contributed, to one degree or another, to the making and character of contemporary state systems, as well as the political cultures underpinning them. This synthesis report is a quick and easily digestible summary of some of the key developments in West Africa which had a direct bearing on governance in the sub-region during 2006. Rather than an exhaustive chronological report, the work is an omnibus tying up various developments in West Africa in presentational and analytic rubrics that are designed to give insights into a variety of governance issues. It forms the basis for future research. The report is in both English and French
Enjeux du financement et de la planification de l'éducation en Afrique : ce qui marche et ce qui ne marche pas = Challenges of education financing and planning in Africa : what works and what does not work( )

11 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in French and held by 1,091 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume highlights the proceedings of the two policy dialogue conferences held by the Working Group on Finance and Education (WGFE) in 2004. Part I of the document discusses the endemic crisis with which higher education has been beset since the outset of the post colonial period in Africa. It highlights the critical state of higher education systems in Burkina Faso, Mali, Nigeria and Senegal by scrutinizing the causes, manifestations and consequences of the crisis to posit useful recommendations and possible solutions. Part II is a comprehensive review of the challenges facing the financing and planning of all levels and types of education - from kindergarten to graduate school - in selected African countries. The papers reveal the sources and mechanisms of funding education in Africa, drawing attention to the experiences of communities confronted with new funding sources. A new trend of designing decade long educational development plans has emerged and is rapidly expanding in numerous African countries

11 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 658 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dr Tajudeen Abdul-Raheem's untimely death on African Liberation Day 2009 stunned the Pan-African world. This selection of his Pan-African Postcards, written between 2003 and 2009, demonstrates the brilliant wordsmith he was, his steadfast commitment to Pan-Africanism and his determination to speak truth to power. He was a discerning analyst of developments in the global and Pan-African world and a vociferous believer in the potential of Africa and African people; he wrote his weekly postcards for over a decade. This book demonstrates Tajudeen Abdul-Raheem's ability to express complex ideas in an engaging manner. The Pan-African philosophy on diverse but intersecting themes presented in this book offers a legacy of his political, social and cultural thought. Represented here are his fundamental respect for the capabilities, potential and contribution of women in transforming Africa; penetrating truths directed at African politicians and their conduct; and deliberations on the institutional progress towards African union. He reflects on culture and emphasises the commonalities of African people. Also represented are his denunciations of international financial institutions, the G8 and NGOs in Africa, with incisive analysis of imperialism's manifestations and impact on the lives of African people, and his passion for eliminating poverty in Africa

Challenges to the nation-state in Africa( Book )

8 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 177 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The challenges facing the nation-state in contemporary Africa are increasingly attracting the attention of scholars interested to understand how the decomposition and recomposition of popular political identities on the continent are affecting the post-colonial (secular) unitary project. The studies presented in this volume show that the challenges to the post-colonial nation-state project in Africa have mainly taken ethno-regionalist, religious, and separatist forms. These challenges have been shaped and exacerbated by the environment of steep, long-drawn out economic crisis, zero-sum, market-led structural adjustment, and the legacy of decades of political authoritarianism and exclusion that dates from the colonial period. The contributors to the book argue the position that, among other things, more representative forms of government, power sharing, electoral pluralism, the re-invention of the post-colonial "social contract" (and with it public institutions), cultural autonomy for minority groups, and the devolution of power are central ingredients in any efforts at promoting national unity and a supporting civic identity in Africa."--Jacket

Structural adjustment and socio-economic change in Sub-Saharan Africa : some conceptual, methodological and research issues by Peter Gibbon( )

12 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report summarises the results of work at the Nordiska Afrikainstitutet/Nordic Africa Institute (NAI) on the impact of structural adjustment implementation on the economies, states and societies of sub-Saharan Africa. It consists of two essays and an appendix listing research projects which have been/are being carried out under the auspices of NAI. The first essay raises a series of conceptual and methodological questions in the context of a presentation of some of the main empirical results obtained from extended field work carried out during the course of 1992 and 1993 in Kenya, Tanzania and Zimbabwe. The second essay presents the three main themes - private trading networks and structures, the changing political economy of land, and popular forms of social provisioning - that constitute the core of the second phase of NAI's structural adjustment research and, in so doing, provides a review of aspects of the adjustment literature. This report is, therefore, an attempt both at stock-taking and agenda-building as part of a wider quest for deepening our understanding of the structures and processes of socio-economic change associated with the crisis and adjustment years in contemporary Africa
African universities in the twenty-first century( Book )

5 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As the twenty-first century unfolds, African universities, and indeed universities everywhere, are undergoing unprecedented change and confronting multiple challenges brought about by the vast and complex processes of globalisation and technological change. Powerful internal and external forces - political, pecuniary and paradigmatic - are reconfiguring all aspects of university life constituted around the triple mission of teaching, research and service. The need for redefining the role and defending the importance of universities has never been greater. How are African universities trying to balance the demands of autonomy and accountability, expansion and excellence, equity and efficiency, diversification and differentiation, internationalisation and indigenisation in the face of liberalisation and privatisation, and as they address the new challenges of knowledge production and dissemination, of Africanising global scholarship and globalising African scholarship? What innovative approaches can they adopt to facilitate the sustainable development of African economies, societies and polities? The two volumes in the Codesria Book Series address these issues. They articulate new values and missions for African universities, and define effective strategies to meet the challenges. Written by some of Africa's leading educators , Volume I examines the implications of the neo-liberal reforms and the new information technologies on African higher education, while Volume II interrogates the changing social dynamics of knowledge production, university organisation, and public service and engagement

The elusive prince of Denmark : structural adjustment and the crisis of governance in Africa by Adebayo O Olukoshi( Book )

7 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 125 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report, an abridged version of which is being published by CODESRIA as part of its project on African Perspectives on Structural Adjustment, challenges the intellectual premises of the governance project of the Bretton Woods twins in Africa. It argues that in the way in which it has been articulated, the World Bank/IMF governance reform agenda can hardly be expected to lay an enduring basis for a system of democratic governance on the continent. Nor can it be expected to create a framework for non-repressive economic reforms
