From Zaire to the Democratic Republic of the Congo
Report; report; text, Created By Nordic Africa Institute Created By Nzongola-Ntalaja, Georges and Published By Nordiska Afrikainstitutet; Uppsala published in 2004
This paper examines the political and social situation in the DRC since May 1997, together with the prospects for a successful political and social transition. Consistent with the deepest aspirations of the Congolese population, such a transition will succeed if it involves an irreversible development towards multiparty democracy and the full utilisation of the country’s immense resources for economic and social development. In other words, a successful transition is one in which basic freedoms and liberties will be guaranteed through democratic governance and the ru...

Africa-China-EU Cooperation in Africa : Prospects and Pitfalls
Report; report; text, Created By Nordic Africa Institute Created By Alden, Chris; Sidiropoulos, Elizabeth and Published By Nordiska Afrikainstitutet; Uppsala published in 2009
Africa-China-EU cooperation is still in its formative stages. It has the express focus of contributing to peace, stability and sustainable development in Africa. The creation of a virtuous circle of growth and development, one which employs the tools of globalisation to Africa’s best advantage, has to be a fundamental aim of any trilateral cooperation. At the same time, the opening up of trilateral dialogue should allow all three partners to give consideration to areas in which conflicting views or interests arise. Indeed, the spectre of a two-way Chin...

Report; report; text, Created By Nordic Africa Institute Created By Goodison, Paul and Published By Nordiska Afrikainstitutet, Globalization, Trade and Regional Integration; Uppsala published in 2009
This paper seeks to look at certain fundamental features of the EU food and agricultural sector adjustment process as it manifests itself through the reform of the CAP. It highlights the shift in policy tools, from price support for agricultural products to income support for EU farmers and the shift in policy emphasis from the quantity of agricultural products to the quality of food and agriculturalproducts.

Report; report; text, Created By Nordic Africa Institute Created By Zack-Williams, Alfred; Cheru, Fantu and Published By Nordiska Afrikainstitutet; Uppsala published in 2008
Post-conflict African states such as Sierra Leone, face critical challenges as they embark on the complex tasks of reconciliation, peace and the rebuilding of war-torn societies.

This collection of three essays explores the significance of Sierra Leone's 2007 elections in the light of the quest of the people for a democracy that is responsive to social demands, ...

Report; report; text, Created By Nordic Africa Institute Created By Bigsten, Arne; Durevall, Dick and Published By Nordiska Afrikainstitutet; Uppsala published in 2008
In a broad survey this issue of Current African Issues presents a multifaceted picture of the current state of the African economy.

The last few years have seen average per capita incomes in Africa grow by above 3 per cent per year on average, partly due to the resource boom but also due to improved economic policies. Africa receives more aid per capita than any other major region in the world and there&...
