about

Free market policies have been in operation across Africa for the past twenty-five years, yet they have failed to reverse deepening poverty on the continent. This book explores why such policies continue to be implemented, despite their failure, and the ways in which they have been reinvented by socialization, depoliticization, regionalization and securitization. The impacts of these policies on security are traced through case studies of Ethiopia, Zimbabwe and South Africa, and ways to transcend neoliberalism on the continent are also explored.
