Abstract:A majority of States in Africa have been implementing IMF-World Bank driven structural adjustment programmes (SAPs) since the 1980s. While the socioeconomic consequences of these programmes leave a lot to be desired, they are now accompanied by the conditionality of political pluralism. However, SAP and democratization are mutually exclusive, and therefore incompatible with stability within nations and peace and security within the African region. Ref., sum.
