    Military coups in sub-Saharan Africa: how to justify illegal assumptions of power1983Bok (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    This is a comparative study of military coups in Africa south of the Sahara between 1958 and 1980. The study is divided into three parts. The first part deals with some different theories found in literature concerning coups d'état on a more general level. The second part is an empirical review concentrating on the justifications given by the military leaders for their interventions. The third part is an attempt to compare the explanations given by the researchers in Part one with the justifications presented in Part two.

    Internally displaced, refugees and returnees from and in Mozambique1994Rapport (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    Mozambique has an estimated population of 15 million people, and about two million of them are estimated to be refugees in neighbouring countries, three millions are "internally displaced" another million are dwelling temporarily in squatter camps, and around 300,000 are "returnees". This review includes both investigations of the causes and nature of the displacements and people's own survival strategies, as well as research on the nature and impact of assistance programmes.

    Migration and development: dependence on South Africa1986Bok (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    Migrant labour is the main source of income of Lesotho society. Its dependence on wage employment as defined by South Africa and the restrictions of foreign contract labour has made Lesotho and its government increasingly vulnerable. The geo-political situation does not seem to give much hope either. Still, the political strategy and the mechanisms of dependence have changed as a result of conscious actions undertaken by the Lesotho government. The dramatic development of this migrant labour society illustrates the realities and the potetial for change. It gives crucial insights into the South African conflict today.

    Common security and civil society in Africa1999Konferanseproceedings (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    This book is the outcome of a conference on Common Security and Civil Society in Africa, held in 1997, and organised jointly by the Nordic Africa Institute and the Common Security Forum, based at the Centre for History and Economics, King's College and the Harvard Center for Population and Development Studies.

    The idea that security is to be achieved by cooperation more than by confrontation, and that it is an economic and social as well as a military condition, has been a commonplace of international politics for some 20 years. The geometry of common or extended security is complex. But it usually involves an extension of the domain of security, of the sources of security, and of the characteristics of security. Among these diverse kinds of security, it is political security which has come into particular prominence at the end of the 1990s, most strikingly in Africa. Political security, in the sense of legal and political institutions such that individuals feel secure both in their individual rights and in the development of political culture, has come to be seen as the foundation of all other kinds of security.

    The papers presented in this volume seek to go 'beyond the war of images', to imagine a different and more secure future, and they are concerned with five major themes: economic and social change; the prevention of violent conflict; the causes of conflict; political security; the international politics of development partnership.

    The Nordic countries and Africa: old and new relations2002Rapport (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    The Institute has asked one representative from each Nordic country to give an account of how their respective countries have dealt with Africa over the years (in some cases even over the centuries) but with an emphasis on the last 50 years. They were also asked to indicate what role Africa has played in the politics, trade, etc. of their countries. The diversity of the invited authors’ backgrounds and fields of specialisation is reflected in their contributions, but the authors have one thing in common: a long experience from, and deep engagement in, Africa’s development.

    Abstract [sv]

    Här diskuteras afrikanska organisationer och institutioner och den betydelse dessa har för den ekonomiska utvecklingen. De olika bidragen i boken förenas kring två teman: den afrikanska organisationens styrka och särprägel är det ena, medan det andra behandlar erfarenheter av arbete med afrikanska organisationer i förändring. Författarna beskriver det komplicerade och tålamodskrävande arbetet som krävs för att utveckla institutioner, men understryker också de stora möjligheter som öppnar sig om det sker på mottagarens villkor.

    Institution building and leadership in Africa1998Collection/Antologi (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    This anthology aims at increasing the understanding of current management practices in Africa, and the challenges faced in building institutions. Two main themes run throughout the book: one is the character of African organisations with their strengths and weaknesses, while the other is the experience of close cooperation with an African organisation. Together the authors create a picture of institutional development work in Africa and its enormous complexity.

    On Africa: scholars and African studies2007Rapport (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    This volume is based on contributions to a seminar which was organised in honour of the Institute’s retiring Director Lennart Wohlgemuth in December 2005. African scholars presented their views on “The Role of Africa in ‘African Studies’”, while Nordic scholars and policy makers responded. The deliberations offer a spectre of relevant approaches on both academic as well as policy oriented research and advisory work in and on Africa.The contributions aim at bridging the gap between academics and practitioners. They share a common commitment to African affairs and seek to support and promote these in the international context.

    Beyond Drops Water: Four Imperatives to Cooperation in the Nile Basin: Claude Ake Memorial Lecture 20102010Annet (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    The Nile basin is one of the oldest places on earth to which renowned civilizations, polities, kingdoms and empires are attributed. The Nile is the world’s longest river whose basin covers some 3.3 million sq. km and shared by ten countries. Whether in the upstream or downstream the countries and communities are permanently bound together, and their millions owe to it the present livelihood and future prosperity. On the contrary, the Nile Basin lacks a cooperative mechanism and perennially stuck in the lingering tension over apportionment of the waters. It is about time now for the Nile basin countries to work towards a viable cooperation beyond drops of water. A mutually acceptable cooperative engagement among the riparian nations is condition-sine-qua-non for enhancing development in each country and achieving the much desired peace and mutual security in the basin. The 2010 Claude Ake Memorial Lecture will, therefore, focus on the economic, environmental, security and institutional imperatives for cooperation and peace building in the Nile Basin.

    Dr. Yacob Arsano is Associate Professor of Political Science & International Relations at Addis Ababa University.

    The quest for sustainable development and peace: the 2007 Sierra Leone elections2008Rapport (Annet (populærvitenskap, debatt, mm))
    Abstract [en]

    Post-conflict African states such as Sierra Leone, face critical challenges as they embark on the complex tasks of reconciliation, peace and the rebuilding of war-torn societies. Conflict transformation ultimately depends on the democratisation of society, in ways that promote equitable inclusiveness in the political process, social justice and the promotion of citizenship rights. This collection of three essays explores the significance of Sierra Leone's 2007 elections in the light of the quest of the people for a democracy that is responsive to social demands, welfare and popular aspirations. It provides first-hand information and analysis of the struggles of the Sierra Leonean citizens to overcome the legacy of a traumatic past, by using their vote to sanction bad governance, and choose a path to a good life and sustainable democracy as the most viable guarantee for peace and development.

    When the State Fails: Studies on Intervention in the Sierra Leone Civil War2012Collection/Antologi (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Compared with Iraq, Afghanistan and Kosovo, the recent western intervention in Sierra Leone has been largely forgotten. This book provides a comprehensive and critical overview of what happened, and examines its ongoing consequences.

    Sierra Leone’s civil war began in 1991 and was officially declared over in 2002 after UK, UN and regional African military intervention. The contributors provide an informed analysis of the impact of the intervention on democracy, development and society in Sierra Leone. They take a particularly critical view of the imposition of neoliberalism after the conflict.

    Refugees in Botswana in the light of international law1990Rapport (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    Africa has more refugees than any other continent. Some have fled from war, some from natural disasters, and many from both.This study is based partly on a field study to Botswana, encompassing interviews with different institutions and persons involved in refugee work, and archive work in that country. It is an unusually detailed and painstaking effort to examine the legal framwork, and the legal problems invovled in the refugee movements.Some of the problems discussed are the relationship between national law and international conventions concerning refugees, the determination of refugee status, the freedom of movement of the refugees, their right to work, and the question of refugees' right to acquire citizenship.

    Making migrants responsible for development: Cape Verdean returnees and Northern migration policies2011Inngår i: Africa Spectrum, ISSN 0002-0397, E-ISSN 1868-6869, Vol. 41, nr 1, s. 61-83Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    In recent years, there has been a surge of “Northern” policy documents concerned with increasing the positive effects of international migration in countries of origin. This article contrasts some basic assumptions in policies on migration, return and development with an anthropological study of Cape Verdean returnees, and it reveals some important disparities between the returnees’ experiences and the ideas underpinning policy documents. The article analyses the role returnees’ savings and skills play in local change in Cape Verde, and in particular it looks into entrepreneurial activities. This is related to a discussion of the conditions that must be fulfilled in order to make it possible for return migrants to contribute to positive social change. In conclusion, the article shows that structural conditions have a fundamental impact on individual migrants’ abilities to support development, a perspective often left out of contemporary policies.

    Migrant remittances, social inequality and restrictive immigration regimes2011Rapport (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    The case of Cape Verde shows that the relationship between remittances and inequality in migrant-sending countries depends on a number of factors. The situation is thus more complicatedthan the dominant pessimistic view of the 1970s and 1980s or today’s “development optimism” discourse. Among the factors are changes over time in the selectivity of migrants, variations in family organization and differences in impact between permanent and return migration. A policy debate about remittances and inequality needs to include immigration regimes. Migrant-sending countries can reduce the risk that remittances will exacerbate socioeconomicinequality by facilitating the use of remittances for projects that benefit local communities. Destination countries can open up possibilities for legal labour migration, especiallyfor those who are not highly educated, in order to promote, among other things, a more equal distribution of remittances.

    Abstract [en]

    This article juxtaposes theoretical notions concerning the relationship between migrant remittances and socio-economic inequality with an anthropological case study of remittances in Cape Verde. Contemporary theorizing involves, firstly, the idea that remittances do not benefit the poorest; secondly, the conclusion that the impact of remittances changes over time; thirdly, the notion that family structure influences the distribution of remittances; and fourthly the proposition that remittances have a stronger impact on social stratification when linked to the return of a migrant. The primary aim of the article is to use these theoretical notions as entry-points for analysing how remittances interplay with patterns of inequality in Cape Verde. A second aim is to examine the explanatory power of the theories through applying them to this specific case. The article demonstrates that remittances in some cases benefit the poorest in Cape Verde and that this has to do with the long history of migration, which means that nearly everyone, irrespective of class, has a close relative abroad. It also shows that Cape Verdeans generally receive quite small amounts of money, which implies that they are seldom able to improve their economic situation in a more substantial way.In conclusion, the article contends that in order to fully appreciate the complex relationshipbetween remittances and socio-economic inequality it is necessary to take into account theimportance of other sources of income. Moreover, it argues that the contemporary restrictiveimmigration regimes in receiving countries have a fundamental impact on the socio-economic distribution of remittances. In studies of the relationship between remittances and inequality, this is an aspect that has been left out. Instead, theorizing tends to focus on factors that are internal to the countries of origin, and on the migrants’ links to these countries.

    Africa's return migrants: the new developers?2015Collection/Antologi (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Many African migrants residing abroad nurture a hope to one day return, at least temporarily, to their home country. In the wake of economic crises in the developed world, alongside rapid economic growth in parts of Africa, the impetus to 'return' is likely to increase. Such returnees are often portrayed as agents of development, bringing with them capital, knowledge and skills as well as connections and experience gained abroad. Yet, the reality is altogether more complex.

    In this much-needed volume, based on extensive original fieldwork, the authors reveal that there is all too often a gaping divide between abstract policy assumptions and migrants' actual practices. In contrast to the prevailing optimism of policies on migration and development, Africa's Return Migrants demonstrates that the capital obtained abroad is not always advantageous and that it can even hamper successful entrepreneurship and other forms of economic, political and social engagement.
