Summary
This book provides unique and detailed perspectives on different aspects of dissent, protest and disputes and how these have, in turn, continued to pose challenges in Africa. The contributors argue that dissent, protest and most forms of disputes in Africa are the result of daily challenges that its people have face and continue to encounter to this day. These challenges include, amongst others, demands for transparency, good governance and accountability, waves of instability that have created insecurity in most parts of the continent, an unsustainable level of youth unemployment, rapid population growth, continent-wide healthcare and poverty crises, and numerous environmental challenges. The chapters elevate the debates on dissent, protest and disputes/conflict in Africa by adding new ideas and introducing new and useful interpretations. The book's strength lies in the contributors' ability to conflate colonial and post-colonial tendencies to show how challenges of the past are not so different from those of today, while also presenting important historical issues from various scholarly perspectives. Dissent, Protest and Dispute in Africa will be of interest for students and scholars of African history, politics, and culture as well as those interested in social movements and civil society
