Summary
This book investigates how changing norms of sovereignty may promote better governance in Africa. It begins by tracing the evolution of the concept of sovereignty and the way, in the post-cold war era, it has been redefined to emphasize the responsibility of the state to manage conflict and protect human rights. African Reckoning includes assessments of how African nations measure up to the idea of sovereignty as responsibility. The book also examines the question of accountability at regional and international levels. The authors conclude that since the power of oppressed people to hold their governments accountable is very limited, the international community has a responsibility to provide victims of internal conflict and gross violations of human rights with essential protection and assistance
