Rethinking Publics and Participation in A Digital Era: a Case Study of HOLAA
Journal article, Created By McLean, Nyx and Published By Taylor & Francis Group in English language
The role of African men in African feminism is a precarious one. At the core are debates on whether African men can be feminist. Using my personal experiences as a starting point I navigate these debates. I delve into the politics of the term feminist and conclude, as Ratele and Botha (2013) did, that African men cannot be feminists but pro-feminists. The use of the identifier pro-feminist assists in not silencing African women's voices. The adaptation of the identifier does not mean African men have no role to play in African f...

Failed Coups, Democratization, and Authoritarian Entrenchment: Opening up or digging in?
Journal article, Created By Powell, Jonathan and Published By Oxford University Press in English language
Long maligned as the largest threat to democratization, recent studies have suggested that military coups can act as important windows of opportunity for democratization in authoritarian regimes. It is argued that even failed coup attempts can roughly double the probability that an authoritarian regime democratizes in the next three years. We revisit these findings by assessing each case of a democratic transition occurring in a failed coup spell in Africa, using the standards of prior work. Our analysis points to a more pessimistic view of the influence&#x...
Domestic Credit and Export Diversification: Africa from a Global Perspective
Journal article, Created By Fosu, Augustin Kwasi and Published By Taylor & Francis Group in English language
As open economies, African countries need to diversify their exports for economic transformation, sustained growth, and development. Meanwhile, there has been increasing importance of development financing. Following the discussion of theoretical issues on the importance of domestic credit as a potential instrument for overcoming the liquidity constraint of developing countries, as in the case of Africa, this paper empirically explores the determinants of export diversification, with particular attention to domestic credit. The estimation is based on a five-year panel regression analysi...
