Abstract:The papers in this volume were first presented at the 6th Congress of the Organization for Social Science Research in Eastern and Southern Africa (OSSREA), which was held in April 2000 in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. The theme of the congress was Globalization, Democracy and Development in Africa. The 18 papers are grouped into three parts: Political and socioeconomic issues; Environmental issues; and Cultural, educational and gender issues. The first part contains chapters on conflict management (Severine M. Rugumamu, Ibrahim A. Elbadawi); human insecurity (M.A. Mohamed Salih); sustainable democracy (John K. Akokpari); sustainable development (Munyae M. Mulinge and Margaret M. Munyae); African enterprises (Cranmer Rutihinda); the debt crisis (Bornwell C. Chikulo); social dimensions of structural adjustment in Zimbabwe (Alois S. Mlambo and Evelyn S. Pangeti); cross-border trade in Somalia (Peter D. Little); and the Sudanese import-substitution manufacturing industry (El-Khider Ali Musa). Part 2 deals with environmental management (William Rugumamu); global environmental change (Raban Chanda); desertification (H.M. Mushala); and indigenous environmental knowledge in Ethiopia (Workineh Kelbessa). The chapters in part three discuss African linguistic nationalism (Inyani K. Simala); the Westernization of the role of women in house construction in Botswana (Faustin T. Kalabamu); gendering education in the Sudan (Idris Salim El Hassan); and private education and self-reliance in Tanzania (Josephat M. Rugemalira).
