Few studies of globalization have analyzed its impact on African societies from the viewpoint of sustainable development. This volume answers that need. The essays here contribute to the store of knowledge about globalization in sub-Saharan Africa by documenting the affect of this global force on the continent's growth-economic, political, and cultural. This interdisciplinary collection provides comprehensive analyses-at the international, national, and local levels-of the theoretical issues revolving around the complex process of globalization, while offering detailed examinations of new models of economic development that can be implemented in sub-Saharan Africa to enhance economic growth, self-sufficiency, and sustainable development. These models are accessible to politicians, public policy analysts, scholars, students, international organizations, nongovernmental actors, and members of the public at large. Finally, the essays here provide insightful case studies of African countries that already demonstrate creative, indigenous-based models of entrepreneurship and discuss efforts to achieve sustainable development and economic independence at the grassroots level. Contributors represent the disciplines of law, history, political science, economics, sociology, anthropology, business and management, African studies and art history, criminal justice, and education.

This work examines public management and the trend of sustainable development in Nigeria from 1966 to 1999. The text analyzes the trend of change that occurred in Nigeria during the several military regimes and the short democratic government. It argues that Nigeria needs to change in both its public administration and its military institutions in order to attain sustainable development. The text addresses why public administrators in Nigeria are happy with the status quo. It uses several cases to present an argument that Nigeria must come to terms with its lack of capable public administrators. Extended family committments, corruption and ethnic ties have affected the impartiality of public managers and private invested interests in competition for state patronage, crucial factors in a nation where the state has been the main agent of development. Thus, the text maintains that the effective performance of public administration in the sustainable development process will require a high level of creative assessment and innovation on the part of political leaders. It goes on to analyze the implication of the profound transformation these change instruments will bring about. The mode of analysis adopted by the author, though specific to Nigeria in this text, should be easily adaptable to other countries.

Thirty years of donor-supported development programmes in Africa have shown that the intricacies of policy content have usually won out over the institutional requirements necessary for effective and efficient government. Consequently, administrative and managerial capacity has been declining rather than improving in much of the continent, and the introduction of structural adjustment policies has tended to compound the problem. Reform initiatives, to strengthen weak markets and bolster weak states, have typically ignored the critical institutional imperatives necessary for generating vibrant markets and a viable governance process. This book revisits issues of sustainable development and capacity building, focusing on the experiences of African researchers and practitioners. The authors - representing the public and non-governmental sectors, as well as the donor community - concentrate on four themes: good governance requires an appropriate balance of responsibilities betweent the public and private sectors; pluralism and decentralisation are fundamental to sustainability; management capacity is the weak link in development programmes; and institution building is directly linked to sustainability. The case studies cover Ghana, Nigeria, Zambia, Tanzania, Kenya and Botswana.

The recent political crises in Kenya, Zimbabwe, and Georgia should alert all to the fact that the emergent democracies that mushroomed all over Africa and Eastern Europe at the end of the last century cannot be taken for granted. They face multiple obstacles including political manipulation, poverty, dependency, racism, ethnicism, religious extremism, short-sighted nationalism, fraud and corruption of all types. Are these democracies sustainable? Were the skeptics right? Are the obstacles due to internal or external factors or both? Could democracy itself with its emphasis on freedom and self-determination cause ethnic conflicts? This book does not only identify and analyze the main obstacles but also argue that they can be overcome with throughout strategies. These include identifying the inherent strengths and weaknesses of democracy, contextualizing some democratic ideals and practices for developing economies, minimizing dependences, making religion an ally for fighting fraud, corruption, and for promoting peace and social transformation, and adopting a pro-democracy and pro-development philosophy of education.

This text aims to contribute to the debate on peaceful co-existence and sustainable development in Africa. The book offers multidisciplinary analysis of the transition in Africa and provides practical and effective policy options for Africans. The book emphasizes the importance of institutions to economic growth and development in Africa. While agreeing that the shortage of competent and skilled technocrats has been a significant problem for many African countries since the 1960s, the contributors argue that the most critical determinant of poverty and deprivation in the continent has been the absence of institutional arrangements that enhance the creation of wealth and also allow ethnic and other groups to live together peacefully. As Africans prepare their societies for the 21st century, this book argues that the first line of business should be state reconstruction - a task that was supposed to have been undertaken shortly after independence but was never accomplished. The main purpose of such an exercise is for each African country to design and adopt institutional arrangements that enhance peaceful co-existence of groups, the creation of wealth, and sustainable development.
