The migration experience in Africa
Collection (editor); book; text, Created By Baker, Jonathan; Aina, Tade Akin; Nordic Africa Institute and Published By Uppsala published in 1995
In this book different authors investigates the range of the migration experience in Africa. Because of the variety and complexity of the reasons which surround and underpin why African populations are so mobile, this volume adopts an eclectic approach which illustrates the diversity of theoretical positions, as well as methodological and analytical trends. Examples of the great breadth and richness of empirical insights into human migrations in the contemporary african context are also given.; CONTENTS: Introduction / Tade Akin Aina & Jonathan Baker -- PART&...
Food security now or wait for research to assess risks? : genetically modified crops and smallholder farmers in Africa
Report; report; text, Created By Nordic Africa Institute Created By Arvidsson, Tommy and Published By Nordiska Afrikainstitutet, Agrarian Change, Property and Resources; Uppsala published in 2015
Genetically modified (GM) crops are by proponents considered as a possible solution to the food and nutrition problems in developing countries. However, there are also concerns of how side effects may affect environment and human health. These will probably still remain unknown for decades. But can Africa wait 30 years for research to give a definite answer about the risks connected with biotechnology?

Market-based and Rights-based Approaches to the Informal Economy : A comparative analysis of the policy implications
Report; report; text, Created By Nordic Africa Institute Created By Vainio, Antti and Published By Nordiska Afrikainstitutet, Urban Dynamics; Uppsala published in 2012
This Policy Dialogue compares two very different conceptions of the informal economy that are prominent internationally: a market-based approach and a rights-based approach. It reflects upon the policy implications of adopting one perspective or the other, and argues that the terms ‘entrepreneur’ and ‘worker’ are often ideologically charged rather than a reflection of the structural positions of the ‘informals’. The paper is critical of a market-based perspective and of the related notion of informal entrepreneurs, as these may lead to policy recommendations that undermin...
Electoral Violence in Africa
Report; report; text, Created By Nordic Africa Institute Created By Adolfo, Eldridge Vigil; Söderberg Kovacs, Mimmi; Nyström, Daniel; Utas, Mats and Published By Nordiska Afrikainstitutet, Conflict, Displacement and Transformation; Nordiska Afrikainstitutet, Conflict, Displacement and Transformation; Nordiska Afrikainstitutet, Conflict, Displacement and Transformation; Nordiska Afrikainstitutet, Conflict, Displacement and Transformation; Uppsala published in 2012
In the time period 2012–2013, over 20 national elections and two constitutional referendums are scheduled in Africa. In several of these elections, violence is anticipated to play a prominent role. There is great urgency to support the establishment of effective and legitimate electoral institutions and electoral frameworks; institute reforms aimed at lowering the stakes of elections; encourage the devolution of powers; improve the socio-economic standing of the populace; and devise strategies to prevent and manage electoral violence.

Persuasive prevention : Towards a Principle for Implementing Article 4(h) and R2P by the African Union
Report; report; text, Created By Nordic Africa Institute Created By Kuwali, Dan and Published By Nordiska Afrikainstitutet, Conflict, Displacement and Transformation; Uppsala published in 2009
While the legality of intervention without Security Council authorisation is still debatablein international law, over-reliance on military intervention increases the risk of too much focus on reactive rather than proactive strategies. If the thresholds for Article 4(h) intervention – like those of the responsibility to protect – are serious international crimes subject to universal jurisdiction, it follows that measures to ensure the observance of the law in prospect, rather than intervention and penalisation of violations in retrospect,are important in preventing violations. Ther...
Trade, development, cooperation : what future for Africa?
Report; report; text, Created By Nordic Africa Institute Created By Melber, Henning and Published By Nordiska Afrikainstitutet; Uppsala published in 2005
Bi- and multilateral trade relations between external actors and individual African states or regional blocs are becoming ever more decisive. The trade policies of both the USA and the EU are anything but helpful. This is true of the USAs African Growth and Opportunity Act (AGOA), the EU Free Trade Agreement (FTA) with South Africa and more recently the Economic Partnership Agreements (EPAs) negotiated in the Post-Cotonou era of European relations with the South. All these initiatives have a potentially detrimental impact on regional integration. The latter...
