A provocative critique of the political situation in Africa argues that poor governance is behind its nations' poverty, AIDS statistics, and unceasing wars, citing a need for improved foreign aid distribution, greater personal freedoms, and more effective administration.

Seminar paper from the year 2008 in the subject Politics - International Politics - Region: Africa, grade: 2,0, Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University (Faculty of Arts), course: Master course: The political economy of regional integration in Southern Africa, 16 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: “The shackled continent” - that is Robert Guest’s chosen title for his book about decades of failure on the African soil (Guest 2004). And indeed, Africa suffered from years of economic crisis, political violence and genocides, food shortages and nature catastrophes. Many people have lost their hopes in Africa but there is still a chance for a bright future of the indigenous continent. No, there is no easy solution for Africa, but there are several ways how to improve Africa’s situation. One way out of the misery is the concept of regional integration. Based on the perception that African nation states can’t compete with global players in a networked world, regionalism offers the power of the many. For Africa, whose economically strongest nation state South Africa is not even producing 0,5% of the worldwide GDP (Notshulwana 2004: 58), regionalism seems to be a chance out of poverty. But the conditions need to be created in terms of stable democracies, qualified leadership and guaranteed rights in every single state. In this assignment I will analyse the role of the big player South Africa on the continent as well as within the Southern African Development Community (SADC) guided by the question: Which role does South Africa play in Africa? In the beginning I will have a look at the process of regional integration in southern Africa in the light of regionalism all over Africa. It will be surveyed what goals are formulated for SADC and which progress was make up till now. The foreign policy of Post-Apartheid South Africa will be broached in chapter two. I will further analyse South Africa’s guidelines towards the SADC and investigate which role the rainbow nation normatively wants to play in Africa. Equipped with basic knowledge about the institution SADC and South Africa I will then make my points on the core issue of this paper: Does South Africa got the resources to act as a hegemon on the continent like the United States in America? Is the government willing to play that role or are the pretensions different? In chapter 3 I will work out South Africa’s hegemonic tendencies and compare them in chapter 4 with the power term Zivilmacht. Both chapters will first focus on southern Africa and then broaden the view on the whole continent. The conclusion will contain an evaluation – South Africa’s status quo: a hegemon or Zivilmacht?

In Who Needs a Missionary? Robert Reese reviews his own missionary experiences in Zimbabwe and finds that the best results came from an indigenous leader who had the least contact with missionaries. Reese conducted interviews with this leader to let him speak for himself about his journey with God in ministry; these interviews form the heart of the book. Mostly without missionary guidance, this Zimbabwean Christian of humble origins journeyed from his conversion to Christ to arrive at a transformation of his home community. Reese draws lessons from the life of this remarkable leader, who has enjoyed so few earthly advantages, yet has been rich in faith and fruitfulness. God has determined that the gospel will work all by itself whenever and wherever it is planted in human hearts.

Acentury ago, migrants often crossed an ocean and never saw their homelands again. Today, they call - or Skype - home the moment their flight has landed, and that's just the beginning. Thanks to cheap travel and easy communication, immigrants everywhere stay in intimate contact with their native countries, creating powerful cross-border networks. In Borderless Economics, Robert Guest, The Economist's Business Editor, travels through dozens of countries and 44 American states, observing how these networks create wealth, spread ideas and foster innovation. He shows how: * Brainy Indians in America collaborate with brainy Indians in India to build $70 fridges and $300 houses * Young Chinese study in the West and then return home (where they're known as "sea turtles"), infecting China with ideas that will eventually turn it democratic * The so-called "brain drain" - the flow of educated migrants from poorcountries to rich ones - actually reduces global poverty *America's unique ability to attract and absorb migrants lets it tap into the energy of all the world's diaspora networks. So despite its current woes, if the United States keeps its borders open, it will remain the world's most powerful nation indefinitely. With on-the-ground reporting from Asia, Africa, Europe and even Idaho, this book examines how migration, for the all the disruption it causes, makes the world wealthier and happier.
