African Regional and Sub-Regional Organizations: Assessing Their Contribution to Economic Integration and Conflict Management

Jul 07, 2011
As one examines the Africa of today, its potential and its problems, its progress and its past, there are a number of recent developments that augur well for the future. This evolution gives Africa’s leaders the tools and framework to fashion its way forward and to secure Africa’s rightful role in the global order. The end of the Cold War, the liberation of minority ruled southern Africa, the emergence of the World Trade Organization and the Africa Growth and Opportunities Act, the focus on HIV/AIDS and related public health issues by the international community as well as the growth of civil society and pressures for democratic change throughout the continent, among many other things, all have resulted in an Africa that is markedly changed and full of potential. more

Jul 07, 2011
Este libro es una edición actualizada de su trabajo Pasiones Nacionalistas, en donde se estudia el concepto de nación a partir de dos rumbos divergentes: el que sostiene que la nación se constituye por la pertinencia a un grupo étnico y el que vincula su origen al contrato social. Los ensayos de la publicación de 1998 tuvieron su origen en el paso del Dr. Carlos Floria por el Woodrow Wilson Center cuando llevaba a cabo su investigación sobre el nacionalismo como cuestión trasnacional.
