This is the first edition of the endeavor, and it is far from capturing the dearth of women's expertise on these critical areas of building peace.

As public debts are increasing in many African countries, we see a new type of debt distress, where short-term commercial loans and bonds have replaced some of the long-term multi- and bilateral loans. This policy note highlights two topical questions: what lies behind increasing levels of debt in Africa, and what are the challenges when financing development projects through loans? Policy recommendations (in short): Debt transparency Better maturity matching Balance revenues and costs Prioritise investment projects and beware of white elephants Reject pro-cyclical fiscal...
|Creating a Conducive International Environment for Africa’s Development : China’s role in Global Governance Reform!|
Report; report; text, Created By Nordic Africa Institute Created By Cheru, Fantu and Published By Nordiska Afrikainstitutet, Globalization, Trade and Regional Integration; Uppsala published in 2010
The world is at a critical juncture: there is the opportunity to come together to pursue a common agenda, or it can break into opposing groups based on differences in income, interests, religion or race. Globalisation exacerbates this tension between opportunity and threats. The most keenly felt tension is the sense that globalisation creates greater inequality in an already unequal world. If the world is unequal, then it must be undemocratic as well. As a result, globalisation and democracy come togetheras simultaneous challenges. As far as Africa is&...

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.

|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...
