|The Ethiopia-Eritrea Rapprochement : Peace and Stability in the Horn of Africa|
Report; report; text, Created By Nordic Africa Institute Created By Bereketeab, Redie and Published By Nordiska Afrikainstitutet, Research Unit; Uppsala published in 2019
This book examines the Ethiopia–Eritrea rapprochement and asks whether it might lead to peace and stability in the Horn of Africa. The Algiers Agreement (2000) that was mediated by the international community – the UN, OAU, EU and USA (the same parties that also served as witnesses and guarantors) – was supposed to be final and binding. But when the Eritrea–Ethiopia Boundary Commission (EEBC) published its verdict, Ethiopia rejected it on the grounds that it awarded Badme, the flashpoint of the war, to Eritrea. The witnesses and guarantors, abdica...

|Faith as politics : reflections in commemoration of Beyers Naudé (1915-2004)|
Collection (editor); book; text, Created By Melber, Henning; Nordic Africa Institute and Published By Uppsala published in 2015
Beyers Naudé was in his later life one of the leading Afrikaner anti-apartheid activists. Convinced by the strength of his faith he took a courageous political stand in a time in South African history when it was much needed. In May 2015, Oom Bey's hundredth birthday was reason to remember and celebrate his service to the people. Faith As Politics is an anthology with contributions from researchers, diplomats, activists and clergies who all have one thing in common – they were all engaged in the struggle against apartheid at the same...
|African conflicts, development and regional organisations in the post-Cold War international system : the annual Claude Ake memorial lecture : Uppsala, Sweden 30 January 2014|
Report; report; text, Created By Nordic Africa Institute Created By Adetula, Victor A. O. and Published By Nordiska Afrikainstitutet; Uppsala published in 2015
A number of recent studies have expressed optimism about the constant decrease in armed conflicts around the world. The prognosis for Africa does not reflect the same optimism. Poverty reduction, transparent and accountable governance and citizen satisfaction with the delivery of public goods and service have shown no sign of significant improvement. In this lecture, Victor Adetula examines the performance of Africa’s regional organisations in ensuring peace and security on the continent. In doing this, he draws attention to the need for national and regional ac...
|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 1998
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...

The book includes: - a summary of the Western Saharan conflict, by...
|Transnational Islamist (Jihadist) Movements and Inter-State Conflicts in the Horn of Africa|
Report; report; text, Created By Nordic Africa Institute Created By Salih, M.A. Mohamed and Published By Nordiska Afrikainstitutet, Conflict, Displacement and Transformation; Uppsala published in 2011
Somalia has engendered the policy debate on the extent of the spread of transnational Islamist Jihadist groups in the Horn of Africa (HOA) and their consequences for peace and security across the region. These concerns are justified given the emergence since the late 1980s of extremist groups such as the Eritrean Islamic Jihad Movement and the Somali Jihadist Islamist groups of the likes of Al-Ittihad, the Islamic Courts Union and currently Al Shabab. The leaders and fighters of these groups relocated to the HOA after the defeat of the Taliba...
|Talking or fighting? : political evolution in Rwanda and Burundi, 1998-1999|
Report; report; text, Created By Nordic Africa Institute Created By Reyntjens, Filip and Published By Nordiska Afrikainstitutet; Uppsala published in 1999
Just like in 1997, there is a great deal of continuity in the political revolution of Rwanda and Burundi, but its regional impact is felt even more, especially in the case of Rwanda. Although the civil war is still ravaging the country, in Burundi the search for a political solution is moving at a snail's pace, through the dual process of political partnership within the country and the Arusha negotiations. On the other hand, the regime in Rwanda continues to favour the military option, which, moreover, has met with some success ...
