About this item

Using theory, empirical research and case studies, this book explores the changing nature of business in Africa and how businesses can actively contribute to the development of Africa. It uses (and critically analyses) the concept of Africapitalism– a management philosophy and movement which seeks to blend the best of African values and Western management theories as a basis for sustainable development in Africa – to understand the subtle factors that underpin business decisions in Africa.

The book is split into two sections:

  • Part I presents current scholarship, trends and issues around the contribution of business to African development, such as the relationship between corporate social responsibility and the ‘resource curse’
  • Part II uses the concept of Africapitalism to explore fresh perspectives on this relationship and suggest ways to strengthen corporate citizenship, sustainable business and sustainable development across the continent

This multidisciplinary book will be valuable reading for advanced students, researchers and policymakers looking at business in society; corporate social responsibility; sustainable business; international business and African development.
