9781780324883: Displacement Economies in Africa: Paradoxes of Crisis and Creativity (Africa Now)

Large-scale displacement - whether caused by war, state-related political or development projects, different forms of political violence, structural crisis, or even natural disasters - evokes many stereotyped assumptions about those forcibly displaced or emplaced. At the same time there is a problematic lack of attention paid to those who benefit economically from, manage, or in various unexpected ways are affected by processes of displacement.

In this highly original volume, based on empirical case studies from across sub-Saharan Africa, the authors provide fresh insights into the unexpected changes, complex agency and persistent dynamism entailed in displacement processes. In doing so, the book explores the diversity of actors, strategies and practices that reshape the world in the face (and chronic aftermath) of dramatic moments of violent dislocation and /or enclosure.

An important contribution to a topic of growing scholarly and policy interest.

About the Author:

Amanda Hammar is Professor of African Studies at Copenhagen University. She has worked primarily as a researcher since 1997, but from 1983 onwards worked in various aspects of social policy, rural development and local government reform in southern Africa.

Review:

“Displacement Economies in Africa, an anthology edited by Amanda Hammar, breaks new theoretical ground in its introduction as it examines the troubling question of displacement economies that result from Africa’s vast and apocalyptic range of upheavals, stemming from wars, misrule, ecological devastation, and allied challenges that confront its nascent nation-states. . . . This is a well-packaged and insightful anthology, and it richly fulfills the claims of the introduction in covering displacement, especially the internally displaced, from a very rich field of empirical investigations.”
  (Journal of Retracing Africa)
