Abstract:Political, ideological, and technological self-reliance is essential if Africa is to avoid further impoverishment and instead achieve positive rates of development for its peoples. Its future need not be gloomy if unity, socialism, and self-reliance are adopted as goals, although nationalism, capitalism, and different growth rates make their realisation problematic. This paper examines carefully and critically various projections of Africa in any future world order: The political economy of Africa - The established world order and inequalities in Africa - The environment and African development - The politics of resources: interdependence or dependence? - Prospects for Africa in a new world order - Alternative African development strategies.
