Abstract:The papers in this volume were originally presented at the first Scramble for Africa conference held from 25-27 May 2011 to commemorate the founding of the OAU. The volume launches a new book series aimed to support the study of African unity and renaissance. The papers are grouped into five parts: 1. Post-colonial nation-building processes: chapter by John M. Mudau and Joseph Francis on antipoverty community engagement activities in Mutale municipality, South Africa; 2. Governance, democracy and development: chapters on corruption in developing countries (Tapera O. Chirawu), Nigerian militarism (Sanya Osha), and the root causes of the fragile State in Africa (Maurice O. Dassah); 3. The new scramble for Africa: Brazil, Russia, India and China: chapters on China's links with Africa (Samuel A. Nyanchoga), the legacy and future of NEPAD (Ebrahim Fakir and Chris Landsberg), Sino-led development in Lesotho (Vusi Mashinini), the EU's Economic Partnership Agreements with Africa (Martin Kaggwa), a comparison of India and China in Africa (Sushmita Rajwar), and economic integration in Africa (Mario Scerri); 4. Indigenous knowledge systems: chapters on the ambivalence of traditional institutions in Namibia, notably in the context of resistance during apartheid (Reinhart Kössler), the use of indigenous knowledge systems to enhance food security in Zimbabwe (Pharaoh J. Mavhunga and Misozi Chiweshe), and African diaspora Christian movements and African unity (Roland A. Nathan); 5. Twenty-first-century pan-Africanism: chapters on the role of youth (Baba A. Buntu), the renaissance of 21st century pan-Africanism (David L. Horne), hieroglyphics and the construction of pan-Afrikan unity (Kimani S. Nehusi), and Conclusion: never again to any form of scramble for Africa (Mammo Muchie, Sanya Osha and Matlotleng P. Matlou). [ASC Leiden abstract]
