This comprehensive collection, written by an eminent group of Pan-African scholars and practitioners, is of critical significance to Africa.fills a crucial gap in the literature and should help encourage strong Southern voices to contribute to debates on the UN that are often dominated by the North. ~ Boutros Boutros-Ghali, United Nations Secretary-General, 1992-1996 *** No African scholar has followed more closely for well over a decade the UN's decisions relating to the continent than Adekeye Adebajo. This volume.brings together many of Africa's leading scholars on and practitioners of international relations to address aspects of the UN's influence on Africa and Africa's role in shaping wider patterns of UN decision-making. It is a truly exceptional contribution to the study of international relations. - David M. Malone, President, International Development Research Centre (IDRC), Canada *** Adekeye Adebajo has assembled a stellar cast to dissect how Africa and Africans have influenced the United Nations, and how the world body has at turns empowered and failed the continent. The result: a policy-savvy collection rich in both opinion and analysis - and the most comprehensive volume on the UN and Africa available. - Sam Daws, Executive Director, United Nations Association of the United Kingdom *** This volume is long over due, given the centrality of Africa for the UN and the UN for Africa. Enriched by Adekeye Adebajo's unrelenting candour and invaluable insights, From Global Apartheid to Global Village will be standard reading for scholars, students, and policymakers alike or many years to come. Its broad scope.is particularly welcome. - Edward C. Luck, Senior Vice President and Director of Studies, International Peace Institute, New York

Book Description University of KwaZulu-Natal Press, South Africa, 2009. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. This book represents the first comprehensive attempt to examine the role of the United Nations in Africa over the last six decades. The contributions are from eminent pan-African scholars and policy intellectuals, most of whom have had practical first-hand experience with the world body. They examine global apartheid - the inequitable power relations between the rich North and poor South - in three important areas: the politics within the UN s principal organs; peacekeeping and human rights; and, socio-economic development, centred on the efforts of sixteen UN specialised agencies, programmes and funds. This is a unique volume on the role of the world s most important multilateral body on its most impoverished continent. Seller Inventory # AAN9781869141721
