GRIN Verlag, 2011 - 36 pages
Essay from the year 2011 in the subject Politics - International Politics - Region: Africa, grade: -, -, language: English, comment: An explanation for the social unrest in Africa today, abstract: This paper explores the factors responsible for the underdevelopment of most African states with an attempt to provide some possible recommendations to overcoming the socio-economic and political problems faced by the continent in a growing inter connected (globalised) world. Some of the factors that hinder Africa's development are at the starting point of this essay. The possible measures that may help reduce the agony in the continent if applied sincerely were put forward for consideration. It is assumed that states do not fail because of accidents but primarily due to the faults of kleptocrats who find themselves in power either through force or rigged elections.
