African Politics and Globalisation - POL255

Globalisation poses special challenges for Africa. The history of African countries has been turbulent in the post-colonial period and the capacity of the state to govern is now questioned in some. The unit examines contemporary debates about the political processes of globalisation by focusing on sub-Saharan Africa and the relations of its polities with others in Africa and the world. Issues of poverty, development, aid and trade are considered.
