Structural Change in Africa : Misperceptions, New Narratives and Development in the 21st Century Hardback
Part of the The International Political Economy of New Regionalisms Series series
Debates on African development continue to downplay the achievement of the continent: economic achievements are diminished and the perception of a conflict prone continent continues.
Many of the policy prescriptions externally imposed on African countries have done little to transform the continent largely because they have been conceived and applied without context. Using literature from diverse origins, this book expands our knowledge about Africa and makes practical suggestions as to how successful development in a complex, yet dynamic continent can be achieved.
Widening the policy dialogue and providing alternative thinking on the key elements and full extent of opportunities and challenges towards achieving the socio-economic transformation of Africa, the book moves the debate from the rhetoric to reality.
As a considered reflection on the 'Africa's transformation' narrative, it outlines the practical pathways necessary for Africa's sustainable development, providing policy makers and researchers with tested solutions.
It will be of interest to all scholars, students and policy professionals working in African development, public policy, international political economy, economic policy and politics.
