Contemporary Regional Development in Africa interrogates well-known concerns in the areas of regionalism and economic integration in contemporary Africa, while offering an added uniqueness by highlighting the capacity imperatives of the issues, and proposing critical policy guideposts. The volume juxtaposes a set of dynamic entanglements - new and micro-regionalism, informal cross-border trade, intra-African and African FDI plus cross-border investments, infrastructure development, science and technology, regional value-chains, conflict management and regional security - with fluid interpretations of regional development. The chapters provide snapshots of the several emerging and complex regionalisms and highlight a set of relevant and often overlapping analyses - drawing on authors nuanced and granular understanding of the African landscape. The varied, yet interlinked, nature of issues covered in this study make the book valuable and attractive to academics, researchers, policymakers and development practitioners.

  • Index
`At a time when regionalism seems increasingly caught between micro-regional initiatives and mega-regional negotiations, this timely discussion of contemporary regional development in Africa helps to clarify the issues involved. The thematic approach adopted by Kobena Hanson and his co-authors ensures a systematic discussion of the stakes associated with the shift from "new" regionalism towards twenty-first-century regionalism.'
Daniel Bach, University of Bordeaux, France

`African leaders, scholars and informed citizens see deeper regional integration as the pathway to a more secure and prosperous future. This book, balancing theory and practice, and drawing on different disciplines and regions, provides valuable, and at times controversial, contributions as to how different regional integration arrangements - from the new regionalism to micro-regionalism - may improve the facilitation of human interactions as well as economic productivity and exchanges across borders so as to improve the overall African human condition.'
Moses N. Kiggundu, Carleton University, Canada

Das Dateiformat PDF zeigt auf jeder Hardware eine Buchseite stets identisch an. Daher ist eine PDF auch für ein komplexes Layout geeignet, wie es bei Lehr- und Fachbüchern verwendet wird (Bilder, Tabellen, Spalten, Fußnoten). Bei kleinen Displays von E-Readern oder Smartphones sind PDF leider eher nervig, weil zu viel Scrollen notwendig ist. Mit Adobe-DRM wird hier ein "harter" Kopierschutz verwendet. Wenn die notwendigen Voraussetzungen nicht vorliegen, können Sie das E-Book leider nicht öffnen. Daher müssen Sie bereits vor dem Download Ihre Lese-Hardware vorbereiten.
