Summary:

Un état des lieux magistral du continent le plus tourmenté du monde. Un livre profondément émouvant et optimiste. Chaque fois que vous tentez d’expliquer « L’Afrique, c’est... », les mots se désagrègent, se dissolvent. Chaque fois que vous tentez d’exprimer une généralité sur l’Afrique, il y aura toujours au moins cinq pays qui feront exception. Et quand vous pensez être arrivé à une certitude, vous réalisez que le point de vue opposé est vrai lui aussi... L’Afrique est pleine de surprises. Pendant trois décennies, Richard Dowden a parcouru ce continent aussi vaste que varié, écoutant, découvrant et remettant sans cesse ses certitudes en cause. Pays après pays, il explore dans ces pages les situations locales, prend en compte les avis personnels, relate les incidents, les actions et les rencontres pour nous raconter l’Afrique sub-saharienne d’aujourd’hui. Le résultat est un livre phare : envoûtant, éclairant et toujours surprenant. Tout ce qu’on a toujours souhaité comprendre à propos de l’Afrique, raconté, expliqué en termes clairs, avec en filigrane la passion contagieuse d’un auteur pour son sujet. " Un compte-rendu intelligent, juste et éclairé sur l'Afrique. Dowden écrit avec passion et à ce titre mérite le titre de porte-parole de l'Afrique" THE TIMES

Summary:

De la révolution haïtienne de 1791 à l'élection du premier président noir des États-Unis en 2008, en passant par les indépendances des États africains et la lutte contre l'apartheid, l'itinéraire de ceux qui ont mis leur vie au service de la libération de l'Afrique et de l'émancipation des Noirs à travers le monde. De New York à Monrovia, de Londres à Accra, de Kingston à Addis-Abeba, une polyphonie rassemblée sous son slogan fédérateur : "Africa unite !". Sommes-nous africains ? Qu'est-ce que l'Afrique ? De cette double interrogation, née au XVIIIe siècle dans la diaspora africaine déportée aux Amériques, a émergé un vaste mouvement intellectuel, politique et culturel qui a pris le nom de panafricanisme au tournant du XXe siècle. Ce mouvement a constitué, pour les Africains des deux rives de l'Atlantique, un espace privilégié de rencontres et de mobilisations. De la révolution haïtienne de 1791 à l'élection du premier président noir des États-Unis en 2008 en passant par les indépendances des États africains, Amzat Boukari-Yabara retrace, dans cette ambitieuse fresque historique, l'itinéraire singulier de ces personnalités qui, à l'image de W.E.B. Du Bois, Marcus Garvey, George Padmore, C.L.R. James, Kwame Nkrumah ou Cheikh Anta Diop, ont mis leur vie au service de la libération de l'Afrique et de l'émancipation des Noirs à travers le monde. Mêlant les voix de ces acteurs de premier plan, bientôt rejoints par quantité d'artistes, d'écrivains et de musiciens, comme Bob Marley ou Miriam Makeba, la polyphonie panafricaine s'est mise à résonner aux quatre coins du " monde noir ", de New York à Monrovia, de Londres à Accra, de Kingston à Addis-Abeba. Les mots d'ordre popularisés par les militants panafricains n'ont pas tous porté les fruits espérés. Mais, à l'heure où l'Afrique est confrontée à de nouveaux défis, le panafricanisme reste un chantier d'avenir, insiste Amzat Boukari-Yabara. Tôt ou tard, les Africains briseront les frontières géographiques et mentales qui brident encore leur liberté.

Summary:

This report presents proceedings from six workshops on deregulation implementation held in Benin, Côte d'Ivoire, Senegal, Tanzania, Uganda, and Zimbabwe in 1993-94. Organized by the Multilateral Investment Guarantee Agency (MIGA) and the Foreign Investment Advisory Service (FIAS), the workshops focused on implementing policies relating to private investment and discussing possible improvements as ways of increasing the inflow of foreign direct investment. The discussions covered 10 subjects: the investment approval process, access to land, domestic financing, tax administration, entry visas and work permits, price controls, customs and port operations, foreign trade formalities, foreign exchange controls and formalities, and the legal and judicial systems. The workshops also addressed the behavior of governments themselves and the mentality and attitudes of the civil service. The volume contains both English and French versions of the text.

Summary:

The central position of the Gambia inside the territory of Senegal, which it cuts almost in two, represents one of the main challenges that both countries must address before thinking of any integration within the larger space of ECOWAS. This is why relations between the Gambia and Senegal were the main theme of topics presented at the national seminar held during two days in Banjul, namely the contradiction of two States sharing the same culture on both sides of their common borders. The seminar held in the Gambia was one of a series of national policy research dialogues, organized between 2005 and 2008 by the Social and Human Sciences Sector of UNESCO, with a view to bringing decision-makers, academics, civil society and others actors together to think about regional integration. Research must proceed and continue alongside the concrete process of making integration happen on the ground.

Summary:

Selon une étude récente de l'ONU, près de quarante millions d'Africains pourraient mourir de faim dans les prochains mois ! Depuis trop longtemps déjà, l'Afrique est terre de tragédies : guerres, pandémies, famines... La situation ne cesse d'empirer, malgré les milliards de dollars et d'euros qui y sont déversés chaque année. Est-ce sans espoir ? Bernard Lugan montre avec force que cet espoir existe, à la seule condition que les acteurs, africains comme occidentaux, s'en prennent enfin aux vraies causes, en cessant de s'abriter derrière les discours dogmatiques. Preuves à l'appui, l'historien rétablit les vérités essentielles de la " question africaine " : - non, l'esclavagisme occidental n'a pas vidé le continent de ses forces vives ; - non, les puissances coloniales ne se sont pas enrichies de la sueur ni du sang des colonies ; - oui, des frontières héritées de la colonisation sont cause de massacres et il faut oser les redéfinir ; - oui, les États africains, indépendants depuis une quarantaine d'années, sont largement responsables de leur situation ; - oui, la démocratie à l'occidentale est génératrice de catastrophes car elle ne tient pas compte des réalités ethniques qui déchirent des nations artificielles ; - oui, les hommes politiques africains ont intérêt à culpabiliser leurs partenaires des pays industrialisés pour mieux percevoir les milliards de l'aide internationale ; God Bless Africa : un réquisitoire au vitriol qui décape les idées reçues, des solutions qui laminent le " politiquement correct ". Un seul objectif : la prise de conscience, noire et blanche, pour sauver le Continent d'une mort programmée. Il y a urgence !

Summary:

This anthology publishes papers presented at Ghana's national seminar in "Nation-states and the Challenge of Regional Integration in West Africa : the case of Ghana", held in Accra from 8 to 9 November 2005. The contributors suggest that Ghana's reluctance to relinquish its sovereignty stemmed from a lack of commitment in the first 20 years of ECOWAS' existence and preoccupation with its own security and survival against internal and external threats. The state has currently demonstrated renewed commitment by establishing a Ministry of Regional Cooperation and the New Agenda for Africa's Development (NEPAD) to coordinate and manage the sub-regional integration programme.

Summary:

The five Regional Economic Outlooks published biannually by the IMF cover Asia and Pacific, Europe, the Middle East and Central Asia, Sub-Saharan Africa, and the Western Hemisphere. In each volume, recent economic developments and prospects for the region are discussed as a whole, as well as for specific countries. The reports include key data for countries in the region. Each report focuses on policy developments that have affected economic performance in the region, and discusses key challenges faced by policymakers. The near-term outlook, key risks, and their related policy challenges are analyzed throughout the reports, and current issues are explored, such as when and how to withdraw public interventions in financial systems globally while maintaining a still-fragile economic recovery.These indispensable surveys are the product of comprehensive intradepartmental reviews of economic developments that draw primarily on information the IMF staff gathers through consultation with member countries.
