African Democracy and Development

by Cassandra Rachel Veney (Editor), Dick Simpson (Editor)

This book is an examination of particular African countries that are in the post-conflict phase. They have experienced horrific civil wars that left thousands of their citizens internally displaced or as refugees in surrounding countries, and some fled to countries in the global north.

The countries examined in the book are in the process of rebuilding institutions of governance that include judicial, legislative, and executive branches. In sum, the countries under review in the book are in the process of harnessing internal and external resources to establish the rule of law, democracy, and economic development.
