Crafting an African security architecture : addressing regional peace and conflict in the 21st century by Hany Besada( )

15 editions published between 2010 and 2016 in English and held by 1,484 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The scope and nature of humanilarian emergencies generaled by civil conflicts and wars in Africa exceed the continental capacity to adequately and effectively respond to them. With the founding of the African Union and the drafting of the Responsibility to Protect doctrine, the basis for collective action against genocide, ethnic cleansing and crimes against humanity, it is a critical time to reflect how best to address issues of regional peace and conflict. New regional conflicts around health, water, land and food security in the world's pooresl and most socially fragmented continent strengthen the need for this volume to assess African regional security arrangements, and provide new policy recommendations. -- back cover

Multilateral development cooperation in a changing global order by Hany Besada( )

12 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 224 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Given the current environment, there is a compelling need to undergo a broad-ranging analysis on the future of multilateral development cooperation. The time has come to critically examine the effectiveness of international development assistance channelled through multilateral organizations, emphasizing what works and what needs to change in the context of an evolving global order. This volume addresses the changing nature of the international aid system and the challenges it poses for the multilateral system, donors and aid recipients, centering on new regional and national relationships developing in the multilateral system, economic and social forces, and national and global policy making. It looks at the increasing complexity and incoherence of the aid architecture that is arising from these trends and examines persistent longstanding challenges at country level, including the need for more capacity development, country ownership, and better quality aid"--
Did the Millennium Development Goals work? : meeting future challenges with past lessons by Hany Besada( )

9 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 181 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"With the target date for the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) behind us, this book asks did they work? And what happens next? Arguing that to effectively look forward, we must first look back, the editors of this insightful book gather leading scholars and practitioners from a range of backgrounds and regions to provide an in-depth exploration of the MDG project and its impact. Contributors use region-specific case studies to explore the effectiveness of the MDGs in addressing the root causes of poverty, including resource geographies, early childhood development and education, women's rights and disability rights as well as the impact of the global financial crisis and Arab Spring on MDG attainment. Providing a critical assessment that seeks to inform future policy decisions, the book will be valuable to those working in the development community as well as to academics and students of international development, international relations and development economics."--

China's growing economic activity in Africa by Hany Besada( )

9 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Trade between the whole of Africa and China (imports and exports summed) grew from $10.6 billion to $73.3 billion between 2000 and 2007, and between Sub-Saharan Africa and China from $7 billion to $59 billion over the same period. China is now Africa's third largest trading partner behind the EU and the US. The Chinese FDI stock in Africa has grown from $49 million in 1990 to $2.6 billion in 2006. On the basis of these data, one frequently hears the claim that China is now a dominant influence in Africa. Here we both evaluate such claims, and assess what factors underlay this phenomenon. We suggest that while the annual growth rates of trade and investment flows are high (around 30% per year sine the late 1990's), the levels are still considerably smaller than such claims might suggest. China in 2006 accounted for only $520 million of inward FDI compared to a total from all sources of $36 billion, around 1.4% of total FDI inflows to Africa; and only 8.6% of African exports and 9.6% of African imports. African interdependence with China thus remains proportionally smaller than that for most other geographical areas, but is growing rapidly. Factors behind this growth are discussed in the text

Unlocking Africa's potential : the role of corporate South Africa in strengthening Africa's private sector( Book )

7 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since 1994, South Africa firms have emerged as some of the largest investors in the rest of Africa. Present in a wide range of sectors across the continent, they have been involved in changing not only Africa's cityscapes and societies, but also, significantly, the conduct of business in the region. This volume draws together authors from different parts of the world who are keenly interested in the development of Africa's private sector. Based in part on the research that the South African Institute of International Affairs (SAIIA) has conducted on the experiences of South African companies in 9 countries across the continent, the volume takes as its standpoint the view that sustainable development in Africa can only be achieved if the private sector is allowed to flourish. Highlighting the importance of public-private partnership in achieving this vision, it offers recommendations on how to strengthen the private sector in Africa for policy-makers interested in the continent's development."--Page 4 of cover
