  • A democracy of chameleons : politics and culture in the New Malawi
  • 2002
  • Samlingsverk (redaktörskap) (övrigt vetenskapligt)abstract
    • After thirty years of autocratic rule under ”Life President” Kamuzu Banda, Malawians experienced a transition to multiparty democracy in 1994. A new constitution and several democratic institutions promised a new dawn in a country ravaged by poverty and injustice. This book presents original research on the economic, social, political and cultural consequences of the new era. The book engages with a culture of politics in order to expand the purview of critical analysis from the elite to the populace in its full diversity. A new generation of scholars, most of them from Malawi, cover virtually every issue causing debate in the New Malawi: poverty and hunger, the plight of civil servants, the role of the judiciary, political intolerance and hate speech, popular music as a form of protest, clergy activism, voluntary associations and ethnic revival, responses to the HIV/AIDS pandemic, and controversies over women’s rights. Both chameleon-like leaders and the donors of Malawi’s foreign aid come under critical scrutiny for supporting superficial democratization. The book ends with a rare public statement on the New Malawi by Jack Mapanje, Malawi’s internationally acclaimed writer. Dismayed at the continuation of an ”oral culture of dictatorship”, Mapanje urges Malawians to confront their past in order to have a future that is free from fear and intolerance.Anyone interested in politics and culture in sub-Saharan Africa will find this book an important source of insight and detailed analysis for a comparative understanding of Africa’s democratization.
  • A History of Water, Series 3, Vol. 3 : Water and Food: From Hunter-Gatherers to Global Production in Africa.
  • 2016
  • Samlingsverk (redaktörskap) (refereegranskat)abstract
    • All societies must manage their water resources. From the early civilizations of the Indus valley, nearly 5,000 years ago, to today’s megacities, meeting the water needs of an urban population remains a perpetual task. How a society manages and controls its water resources - whether for food and farming, drinking, sanitation, power or transport – plays a formative role in its development. And never more so than in our own century, with the global population approaching seven billion and the continuing threat of climate change.As concerns over global water resources continue to grow, the pioneering History of Water series brings a much needed historical perspective to the relationship between water and society. Covering all aspects of water and society - social, cultural, political, religious and technological - the volumes reveal how water issues can only be fully understood when all aspects are properly integrated. Unprecedented in its geographical coverage and unrivalled in its multidisciplinary span, the History of Water series makes a unique and original contribution to a key contemporary issue.
  • A new partnership for African development : issues and parameters
  • 1997
  • Proceedings (redaktörskap) (övrigt vetenskapligt)abstract
    • As part of the on-going review by the Swedish government of the entire basis for its relations with Africa, a seminar on the theme Partnership Africa was convened in Abidjan in January 1997 under the auspices of Nordiska Afrikainstitutet and the African Development Institute of the African Development Bank. The Seminar was attended by some 25 scholars, development bankers, government officials and civil society activists from all parts of Sub-Saharan Africa and some 10 development co-operation officials and academics from Sweden and the other Nordic countries.The aim of the Abidjan seminar was to enable participants to explore the problems of and prospects for the establishment of a new partnership between Sweden and Africa  in the context of the major changes that have taken place on the global and regional scenes over the last decade. For this purpose, various issues central to the history and dynamics of North-South relations generally and Swedish-Africa co-operation in particular were critically examined. Participants also sketched out what they considered to be the essential pre-conditions and parameters for a new partnership, one that would be premised on greater equality, mutual respect and a transparency of purpose and goals.This publication brings together in a volume, the various papers which were commissioned to serve as background materials for the debate that took place in Abidjan. The volume was edited for publication by Henock Kifle, Director of the African Development Institute of the ADB, Adebayo O. Olukoshi and Lennart Wohglemuth, respectively Senior Researcher and Director of Nordiska Afrikainstitutet.
  • A new scramble for Africa? Imperialism, investment and development
  • 2009
  • Samlingsverk (redaktörskap) (övrigt vetenskapligt)abstract
    • Dramatically escalating prices of raw materials, driven by rapid industrialisation in China and other countries of the global South as well as by looming world shortages, had for the few years preceding the financial meltdown and global recession of 2009 promoted a new scramble for Africa’s natural resources. It signalled a brisk turnaround in prospects for what The Economist had dubbed the ‘hopeless continent’ as recently as 1999. However, while average growth rates across the continent have increased, the implications for Africa’s development were and remain at best dubious. In this important volume, the new scramble for Africa is placed in the historical context of imperialism and the contributors show important continuities with the original nineteenth-century scramble. However, while the previous scramble was between major European powers, today the continent provides a battleground for competition between the US, the European Union, China and other emerging players such as India and South Africa. This book raises significant general questions relating to the nature of emerging global competition between the US and China; the centrality of the struggle for oil and minerals and resulting militarisation; the international battle to capture Africa’s markets; the marginalisation of African capitalism; and the ambiguous benefits that investment and production by multinational companies bring to African communities. Arguing that exploitation of the continent by comprador African elites remains central, the book concludes by raising important questions about the prospects for development in Africa.
