From the Editor/ Publisher Africa and the War on Terrorism Jideofor Adibe, PhD In this edition In the November/December edition of the journal, we dealt with one of the most intractable problems in the continent: wars and conflicts. We posed, and sought answers to a number of fundamental questions: Is Africa, specifically sub-Saharan Africa, doomed Will Africa ever know peace What are the real causes of wars and conflicts in the continent And what should be done to prevent wars and effectively manage conflicts In this edition we examine Americas War on Terrorism following the events of September 11 2001 in that country, and their aftermaths. The war has been the dominant global rhetoric ever since that unfortunate incident, with global ramifications. But what are the implications of the war for Africa How will it impact on the current democracy projects in the continent And how will it affect Muslim-Christian relations These are some of the questions contributors seek to............

From theEditor/ Publisher Nigeria: Rousing the Sleeping Giant Jideofor Adibe, PhD In this edition In the January/February edition of the journal, we posed, and sought answers to a number of fundamental questions on Americas war on terrorism following the events of September 11 2001 in that country and their aftermaths. Some of the questions we sought answers for included: What are the implications of the war for Africa How will the war impact on the current democracy project in the continent And how will it affect Muslim-Christian relations In this issue, we take on Nigeria, one of the embodiments of Africas paradoxes and hope. A country of some 130 million people, Nigeria is the sixth largest oil producer in the world, and has some of the most resourceful people on the planet. Yet, it has remained a slumbering giant, unable to wake up and fight for its rightful place in the world and consequently poorly ranked in all the indices of human development. This has been ............

From the Publisher Africa and the UN Security Council Reforms Jideofor Adibe, PhD In this issue In the July/August edition of the journal, we focused on China-Africa relations in what Chinese diplomats like to call the 'new period' - a euphemism for a period of its emergence as a great economic power. We posed and sought answers to a number of critical questions: Will China's desire to find markets for its goods lead to policy options that will do for the continent what decades of the West's engagements have so far failed to achieve Are the Chinese merely using Africa to test their goods as some cynics insist Can Africa capitalise on any 'beautiful bride' status to win concessions from its suitors In this issue we look at the quest to reform the United Nations Security Council, including Africas position in that quest and pose a number fundamental questions: Is the will to reform the UN-SC there at all Are talks about reforming the UN-SC mere word-mongering Is Africa ............

From the Editor/Publisher The Chinese Are Coming! China-Africa Relations in the new period Jideofor Adibe, PhD In the May-June edition of the journal we discussed the report of Prime Minister Tony Blairs Commission for Africa, which was launched on March 11, 2005. We noted that while many Africanists have reasons to suspect a hidden agenda each time another save-Africa initiative is launched in the West, there are still some who are ever ready to give each initiative the benefit of the doubt. We brought contributors who offered various perspectives on the Commissions report, including an assessment of the chances of the CfA report succeeding where others have failed. In this edition, we focus on China-Africa relations in what Chinese diplomats like to call the new period a euphemism for a period of its emergence as a great economic power. While many remain fixated on what the G8 countries can or cannot do to help make poverty history in Africa, some analysts and pol............

From the Publisher ? South Africa: A Big Brother or the New Imperial Power in Africa? ? Jideofor Adibe In the September/ October issue of the journal, we looked at the quest to reform the United Nations Security Council, including Africa?s position in that quest and posed a number fundamental questions: Is the will to reform the UN-SC there at all or are talks about reforming the UN-SC mere word-mongering and empty rhetoric? What kind of geo-political alliances will any quest to offer permanent membership of the Security Council to some African countries throw up in the continent??? ? In this edition we focus on post-Apartheid South Africa, which has a dominant position in Africa?s political economy. We examine the country?s Africa policies, including its trade policies, and pose a number of vital questions: What is the character of South Africa?s relations with the rest of the continent? Who benefits from its apparently increasing engagement with the rest of the contin............
