Abstract:This book is an outcome of the third conference in the 'Scramble for Africa' International Conference series, now renamed the 'African Unity for Renaissance' International Conference. The book discusses various issues pertaining to African unity and African renaissance, that animate Africa's stand in the global political, socio-economic, cultural and technological arenas. The chapters provide an insight into the issue of whether Africa has achieved genuine independence after 50 years of the founding of the OAU and evaluate the steps Africa has taken towards unity. The book consists of four thematic parts: Part I, Pan-Africanism: shared values of governance and democratic principles, with contributions by Charles Verharen, Mammo Muchie and Hailemichael Demissie, John Trimble, Westen Shilaho, Claudius Fergus, Babatunde Fagbayibo, and Babatunde Omotosho; Part II Pan-African education, with contributions by Morgan Ndlovu, Oscar Brathwaite, Amos Otieno Ahenda, Tuntufye Mwamwenda, Caroline Marks Madongo, and Carol Williams; Part III Development, economy, trade and diaspora engagement, with contributions by Samuel Oloruntoba and Solomon Akinboye, Marumo Nkomo, Serges Djoyou Kamga, Vusi Gumede and Kagiso Pooe, Bernard Njoh Niba, and Christal Oghogho Spel; Part IV Conflict, peace and security, with contributions by Manji Augustine Diyal, Chakwa Joshua, and Mammo Muchie, Phindile Lukhele-Olorunju and Hailemichael Teshome Demissie.
