Sub-Saharan Africa is experiencing an impressive measure of economic revivalism that is driven by both national and international forces at the beginning of the twenty-first century. That political and business leaders in the region are determined that development in this millennium will not mimic the slow pace of growth in the twentieth is a given. Undoubtedly, the rapid spread of information communications technology (ICT) and contemporary investments of China in the region’s growth agenda bear this thesis out. This book, among other things, advances the theory that improving human rights practices and the democracy project—i.e. democratic consolidation in sub-Saharan Africa will create an enabling environment that is critical for stimulating the current inspiring development objectives.
This volume contains an extremely rigorous and informative analysis of the human rights situation in sub-Saharan Africa. Examining Human Rights Issues and the Democracy Project in Sub-Saharan Africa sufficiently and effectively draws out the important link between the protection of human rights and the deepening and institutionalization of democracy. Professor Udogu presents a compelling and credible story for making the protection of human rights the center of a country’s poverty alleviation and development policy. This is a refreshing, rigorous, informative and multidisciplinary analysis of human rights and political development in sub-Saharan Africa. Students of African political economy, policymakers, and anyone interested in human development in the region should find this study especially useful.
