Frontières de la citoyenneté et violence politique en Côte d'Ivoire by Jean-Bernard Ouédraogo( )

16 editions published in 2008 in French and English and held by 1,524 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book seeks to explain the events that have been taking place in Côte d'Ivoire since 1999 and which are commonly referred to as 'la crise ivoirienne' (the Ivorian crisis). It seems that the day to day interpretation of the events did not provide a satisfactory explanation of the deep fracture and that it was necessary to reconsider the essentialist theoretical categories that are striving to impose on us a false view, made cumbersome by ethnocentric prejudices. To avoid falling into the trap of the day to day interpretation of events will require an in-depth questioning of the causes of the foreseen collapse of the Ivorian model. Having a grasp on the historical meaning of facts is required in examining the sequence and interconnection of events which we always need to rule on the historical weight in order to gauge the tragic trend of the social dynamics. While looking for the causes of the social and political rift, the authors of this volume started by asking a central question: How does the weight of the modern Ivorian society formation intervene in the modalities of the actions of individuals and current collectivities? The brutal and violent fracture which the Ivorian social formation underwent brings forth, once again, the issue of collective identities and unveils, at the same time, the challenges related to the incomplete nature of the construction of 'Nation States' in Africa. In fact, it is a mistake to think that the crisis spontaneously started among partisan higher authorities and to ignore that behind the ostentatious declarations on National Unity, pre-colonial groups have not completely melted into the modern 'Nation'. Furthermore, in the process of 'national' social space formation, new social combinations emerge by continuously re-inventing themselves. It seems that the roots of current crises reside in the unprecedented transformation which contemporary African societies have been undergoing
Africa and the Challenges of the Twenty-First Century : Keynote Addresses Delivered at the 13th General Assembly of CODESRIA (Rabat, Morocco, December 2011) by Ebrima Sall( )

9 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 584 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Council for the Development of Social Science Research in Africa, CODESRIA, held its 13th General Assembly, 5-9 December 2011, in Rabat Morocco. The theme of the scientific conference was: "Africa and the Challenges of the Twenty-first Century". Some of the reasons that influenced the choice of this theme were to do with how Africa should position itself in the new global political and economic order in the context of an increasingly complex neoliberal globalisation. Changes in intercultural relations at the global level, climate change, poverty, rapid urbanisation, the ICTs revolution, the emergence of a multi-polar world and the phenomenon of emerging powers of the South are some of the realities of our world that are widely and extensively discussed by both academics and policy-makers. This book contains the statutory lectures of the 13th General Assembly. Each one speaks to major challenges that African and the Global South are facing in this second decade of the Twenty-first Century: neoliberal globalisation, capital flight, the land question, gender relations, with a particular focus on matriarchy; and universalism
Human rights, regionalism, and the dilemmas of democracy in Africa( Book )

6 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It has often been argued that the concept of human rights is an artefact of modern Western civilisation, that human rights in the South are privileges conferred. These approaches have taken little cognisance of the place accorded to the societal rights held in such esteem as complementary to individual rights in traditional African society. In contrast, this study argues that human rights in Africa are as much about the dignity of Africans as about the commitments of others towards them. It argues for a critical defence of universal human rights within a multicultural framework. From historical perspectives, it illustrates how the slave trade, and then colonialism undermined the traditional balance of individual and societal rights
State and society in the Gambia since independence by Ebrima Jogomai Ceesay( Book )

8 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 135 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Gambia, unlike its West African neighbours, has since independence, enjoyed a prolonged spell of stability and functional democratic governance, albeit, with challenges to its social order and political structures. These continuing challenges have been evident since independence in 1965, and are manifest in the absence of an active civil society and effective political institutions against a backdrop of widespread impoverishment. In July 1994, the First Republic was overthrown in a military coup led by Yahya Jammeh. Although the army formally withdrew from politics in 1996 and Jammeh was "elected" President, a new style of governance subsequently emerged to limit constitutional rule and fundamental human rights."--Publisher's website
Women in academia : gender and academic freedom in Africa by Codesria( Book )

9 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

L'objectif premier de cet ouvrage est de contribuer à la compréhension des changements dans l'environnement de la recherche en Afrique en faisant ressortir qu'ils dépendent des environnements socio-politiques, économiques et culturels. La lutte pour la liberté intellectuelle est liée aux luttes pour le droit à la citoyenneté, à la démocratie. Plus spécifiquement, E. Small regroupe ici les rapports de sept pays (Cameroun, Egypte, Malawi, Mauritanie, Nigeria, Sénegal, Tanzanie) sur le cas des femmes en matière d'autonomie et de possibilités d'études et de carrières de niveau universitaire. Le chapitre d'introduction trace un tableau de la situation difficile de l'ensemble des femmes africaines, puis, chaque pays met en relief dans son rapport un problème particulier (par exemple, le harcèlement sexuel non réprimé, le facteur religieux, l'incompatibilité entre une carrière et la charge familiale non partagée, le fait que les recherches sur les différences dues au sexe ne soient pas considérées comme "sérieuses")

Petite dimension et gouvernementalité : essai d'analyse de l'édification de l'état en Gambie by Ebrima Sall( )

7 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in French and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

THIS THESIS IS DEVOTED TO THE STUDY OF GOVERNMENTALITY IN AFRICA, WITH A CASE STUDY ON THE GAMBIA, A SMALL ENCLAVE WITH A POPULATION OF LESS THAN ONE MILLION INHABITANTS. THESE FACTORS INFLUENCED THE PROCESS OF STATEX BUILDING AND THE PRODUCTION OF A "NATION AL IDENTITY. THE CONCEPT OF A "STATE OF A SMALL SIZE" IS PREFERED TO THAT OF A MICROSTATE WHICH IS TOO TIED TO THE NORMATIVE ONE OF "VIABILITY". THE GAMBIAN STATE SEES ITSELF AND WANTS TO BE SEEN SOMETIMES AS A STATE LIKE ANY OTHER ONE, IN WHICH CASE IT CALLS FOR THE RESPECT OF THE PRINCIPALE OF EQUIVALENCE WHICH IS SUPPOSED TO GOVERN INTERSTATE RELATIONS, AND SOMETIMES AS A SPECIAL ACTOR OF THE WORLD SYSTEM BECAUSE OF ITS SIZE. LIKE OTHER STATES OF A SMALL SIZE, IT HAS ALL THAT MAKES A STATE A STATE AND IT BEHAVES LIKE ONE VIS-A VIS ITS POPULATION. THE STUDY SHOWS THE PECULIARITIES OF THE GAMBIAN ECONOMY AND POLITICAL SYSTEM, HOW HUMAN BEHAVIOUR IS MANAGED AND SOME POPULAR MODES OF POLITICAL ACTION, HOW THE STATE AND SOME SOCIAL GROUPS TRY TO OVERCOME THE CONSTRAINTS ASSOCIATED WITH A SMALL LAND AREA AND ENCLAVEMENT, FOR INSTANCE BY ADOPTING STRATEGIES AIMED AT TRANSFORMING THESE FACTORS INTO SOURCES OF RENTS-WITH CONSEQUENCES ON BOTH SOCIAL RELATIONS WITHIN THE GAMBIA AND RELATIONS WITH NEIGHBOURING SENEGAL OR FOR THE SOCIAL GROUPS, BY OCCASIONALLY RETREATING TO THE HINTERLAND THROUGH VARIOUS SOCIAL AND COMMERCIAL NETWORKS, OR BY ARBITRATING BETWEEN PRICES AND POLICIES IMPLEMENT ED IN THE DIFFERENT PARTS OF THE SUB-REGION
Peace research for Africa : critical essays on methodology by Erin McCandless( Book )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Research in the field of peace and conflict studies needs to improve the quality and relevance of knowledge by and for Africa. This requires a healthy debate over appropriate methodologies and epistemological approaches, the linkage between theory and application as policy, and the ways in which peace and conflict studies research can be usefully compared to that in other fields. This is important for bridging the gap between the study of peace and conflict resolution issues and on-the-ground peace-building activities in Africa, relating the theory and empirical research to the practical needs of practitioners and decision makers. Such research should offer both a conceptual foundation of applicable and operational theory and case study examples that address ways in which political, economic, and social factors influence conflicts in Africa

Africa: reaffirming our commitment = Afrique: reaffirmation de notre engagement( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in Undetermined and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The CODESRIA Policy Dialogue Series has been designed as a means of addressing the main challenges facing the African continent. Africa: Reaffirming our Commitment examines the economic foundations of our states and the question of the dignity of Africans as human beings. We are operating under a ferocious globalisation where the rules of engagement are based on economic and military supremacy, fields in which Africa still lags behind. The objective of this book is not to lament or finger-point those who caused Africa's ills, but rather to think of means and propose strategies that can be used to free ourselves from poverty and oppression, and most importantly, identify the main drivers that could accelerate Africa's development. This publication proffers ways by which our economy and our governments can be put at the service of all Africans. It proposes ways towards the establishment of pacific, harmonious, just and equitable societies in an Africa where local and pan-African citizenship will be a reality. It also advocates the establishment of collective identities and inclusive societies informed by a redefined vision of our future generated through a new education and mode of socialisation through schools and other national institutions
