Abstract:Over the years Indo-African relations have moved from a period of high political and diplomatic solidarity to a more material, concrete and pragmatic partnership. This volume comprises papers presented at an international seminar on emerging trends in Indo-African relations organized by the African Studies Association of India (New Delhi, 2004). The papers deal with various aspects of the changing relations between India and Africa in the politico-diplomatic, economic, strategic and cultural context. Several chapters cover India's relations with a specific region or country: francophone Africa, North Africa, Sudan, Ethiopia, Zambia, Democratic Republic of Congo, Horn of Africa, and South Africa. There are also separate chapters on Indian communities in Africa and the mutual perceptions Africans and Indians have of each other, 'Hindu' dance groups and Indophily in Senegal, and how to make the African Peer Review Mechanism (APRM) work by using a mixture of peer pressure and sanctions.
