Cursusdoelen

At the end of the course:

  • You have knowledge of trends, theories and discussions on governance, development, (violent) conflic,t and the international community's interventions in Africa.

  • You are able to apply and use these theories and debates in discussions and writings about practices of governance and interventions by government institutions, non-state (violent) actors and the international community.

  • You can critically challenge common-sense assumptions and imaginaries about the continent, as portrayed in the media and reflect on your own prejudices.

  • You will be more familiar with one African country or region, and in the general debates introduced in the course you can skilfully relate to a particular dynamic in the country or region of your choice.
Inhoud
Africa is often portrayed as a continent of extremes and a victim to external meddling. By analysing the history and characteristics of governance in sub-Saharan Africa and by exploring how (violent) conflict plays a role in this, the course aims to move beyond stereotypes and explore African agency – socially, economically and politically. We will investigate the vast grey area between the optimistic prospects for Africa's rising economies and the dark images of a continent in poverty and conflict. We will also explore how African actors push back at stereotypes and external pressures. The course aims to debate trends, conceptualisations and theories about governance and conflict in Africa, applying these to specific country cases in order to develop a more nuanced and highly contextual understanding of the continent.
