Africa Publications, April 2011

6 05 2011

A list of recent reports on Africa that were highlighted in the April issue of the Democracy Resource Center Bulletin.

Elections and Violence in Nigeria: The Question of Citizenship in Sub-Saharan Africa
Since its independence in 1960, Nigeria’s ruling civilian and military elites have never engaged their fellow citizens in the type of robust civil discourse that would have allowed them to confront the critical issue of citizenship. Source: Brookings.

Politics and Transition in the New South Sudan
Now that South Sudan’s referendum is complete and its independence from the North all but formalised, focus must increasingly shift to the political agenda at home. Source: International Crisis Group

Zimbabwe: The Road to Reform or Another Dead End?
The situation in Zimbabwe is deteriorating again under a new wave of political violence organised by Robert Mugabe’s ZANU-PF party, and the country faces another illegitimate election and crisis unless credible, enforceable reforms can first be implemented. Source: International Crisis Group

Inclusion of a publication does not imply ownership or endorsement by the National Endowment for Democracy (NED); rather, these are publications that the Democracy Resource Center believes would be of interest to NED staff and others interested in democracy promotion.
