9780754610854: Preparing Africa for the Twenty-First Century: Strategies for Peaceful Coexistence and Sustainable Development (Contemporary Perspectives on Developing Societies)

This text aims to contribute to the debate on peaceful co-existence and sustainable development in Africa. The book offers multidisciplinary analysis of the transition in Africa and provides practical and effective policy options for Africans. The book emphasizes the importance of institutions to economic growth and development in Africa. While agreeing that the shortage of competent and skilled technocrats has been a significant problem for many African countries since the 1960s, the contributors argue that the most critical determinant of poverty and deprivation in the continent has been the absence of institutional arrangements that enhance the creation of wealth and also allow ethnic and other groups to live together peacefully. As Africans prepare their societies for the 21st century, this book argues that the first line of business should be state reconstruction - a task that was supposed to have been undertaken shortly after independence but was never accomplished. The main purpose of such an exercise is for each African country to design and adopt institutional arrangements that enhance peaceful co-existence of groups, the creation of wealth, and sustainable development.
