Who is an African? (African Renaissance, vol 1 No 2, 2004)

Jideofor Adibe

Who is an African? (African Renaissance, vol 1 No 2, 2004) by Jideofor AdibeWho is an African? On the face of it, it seems such a simple, and even rhetorical question. Surely, everyone knows who is an African, it would seem. But not so simple if other qualifiers are added to the question: Do all people regarded as Africans, or of having an African pedigree, regard themselves as such? Are all who regard themselves as Africans accepted as being so? Where does African identity fit into in the mosaic of identities that people of African ancestry, or who live in Africa bear?

Wars and Conflicts: Will Africa Ever Know Peace? (African Renaissance, Vol1 No 3, 2004)

Jideofor Adibe

Wars and Conflicts: Will Africa Ever Know Peace? (African Renaissance, Vol1 No 3, 2004) by Jideofor AdibeIn this edition we are taking on one of the most intractable problems in the continent: wars and conflicts. Africa has a disproportionate share of global conflicts and wars. Some of the implications of this are clear: resources in conflict areas are diverted away from where they are needed most to procuring arms and containing insurrections, the image of the continent as a figurative expression for anarchy is reinforced in the western imagination, investors run scare, and the continent continues what some cynics have referred to as its terminal decline to the abyss. With wars and conflicts as...

Africa and the War on Terrorism

Jideofor Adibe

Africa and the War on Terrorism by Jideofor AdibeIn this edition we examine America's 'War on Terrorism' following the events of September 11 2001 in that country, and their aftermaths. The 'war' has been the dominant global rhetoric ever since that unfortunate incident, with global ramifications. But what are the implications of the 'war' for Africa? How will it impact on the current democracy projects in the continent? And how will it affect Muslim-Christian relations? These are some of the questions contributors seek to answer in this edition. Of course the discussion of the various contributions in the lead theme is, as usual, bound to...

Nigeria: Rousing the Sleeping Giant 9African Renaissance, March/April 2005)

Jideofor Adibe

Nigeria: Rousing the Sleeping Giant 9African Renaissance, March/April 2005) by Jideofor AdibeIn this issue, we take on Nigeria, one of the embodiments of Africa's paradoxes - and hope. A country of some 130 million people, Nigeria is the sixth largest oil producer in the world, and has some of the most resourceful people on the planet. Yet, it has remained a slumbering giant, unable to wake up and fight for its rightful place in the world and consequently poorly ranked in all the indices of human development. This has been a major source of concern, even irritation, disappointment and anger among many Africans who believe that Nigeria carries the hopes and aspirations of black people...

Tony Blair's Commission for Africa Report: Another Gesture Politics? (African Renaissance, vol2 No 3 2005)

Jideofor Adibe

Tony Blair's Commission for Africa Report: Another Gesture Politics? (African Renaissance, vol2 No 3 2005) by Jideofor AdibeIn this edition, we focus on the recent report of Prime Minister Tony Blair's Commission for Africa. Launched on March 11 2005, the 450-page document has the usual media-friendly rhetoric, which reminds one of the arrays of past messianic documents, conferences and workshops on how to jerk Africa out of the poverty in which it is undoubtedly mired in. While some now suspect a hidden agenda each time another save-Africa- initiative is launched in the West, (notice that it has now become obligatory for many Western celebrities to travel to Africa, and usually be photographed with AIDS patients),...

The Chinese are coming: China-Africa Relations in the New Period (African Renaissance, vol 2 No 4 2005)

Jideofor Adibe

The Chinese are coming: China-Africa Relations in the New Period (African Renaissance, vol 2 No 4 2005) by Jideofor AdibeIn this edition, we focus on China-Africa relations in what Chinese diplomats like to call the 'new period' - a euphemism for a period of its emergence as a great economic power. While many remain fixated on what the G8 countries can or cannot do to help 'make poverty history' in Africa, some analysts and policy makers are beginning to pay special attention to China's new engagement with Africa, and are asking critical questions: Will China's desire to find markets for its goods lead to policy options that will do for the continent what decades of the West's engagements have so far failed to...

Africa and Arabia: Collaboration or Conflict? (African Renaissance vol 1 nol 1 2004)

Jideofor Patrick Adibe

Africa and Arabia: Collaboration or Conflict? (African Renaissance vol 1 nol 1 2004) by Jideofor Patrick AdibeFor our maiden edition, we have chosen to examine the relations between Africa and Arabia. We brought together professionals and authorities of different persuasions, and asked them to approach the theme as they saw fit. What we have is a rich menu, which we believe will raise sufficient questions, if not answers, for any one really interested in the dynamics of the relations between Africa and Arabia. We have also published comments on some of the contributions. Besides the lead theme, there are also many other stimulating analyses, from the recent elections in South Africa to the AIDS epidemic....
