Africa Publications, May 2011

1 06 2011

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

Congo: The Electoral Dilemma
Faced with the dilemma of respecting the constitutional deadline and organising botched elections, or ignoring that deadline and sliding into a situation of unconstitutional power, the Congolese authorities have chosen the first option. Source: International Crisis Group

Silencing the New Front: the Emergence of Widespread Torture against the Youth Movement
The report documents the continued arrest and torture of students and youth at universities throughout Sudan, and in Abu Shouk and Al Salaam IDP Camps in El Fashir, North Darfur. Source: African Centre for Justice and Peace Studies

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.
