Security, Education and Development in Contemporary Africa (Hardcover)
About this item
This volume delineates the critical link among in/security, education, and development in Africa and provides a multidisciplinary framework of analyses and possible solutions. Africa has had a long history that embodies layers of mass scale criminality and exploitation not merely from neocolonial and apartheid policies but from political greed. This had impacted adversely on security, education, and development in a way that deprivation of education and underdevelopment, in turn, re-creates in/security issues.
The volume aims firstly to help augment scholarly inquiry into the nexus among in/security, education, and development through the multidisciplinary framework of analyses; secondly to provide policy makers and educators with tools and a framework to comprehend the complexity and magnitude of the issues to which they ought to be sensitive and respond; and finally to provide caregivers and childcare agencies of the state a comprehensible framework of underlying, multifaceted sources of trauma experienced by children in extra-ordinary circumstances. It is organised in four sections: theoretical conceptualization on security and development; country cases on security and development, security and educational development, and; country cases on security and education.
Serving as a significant compass to understand and respond to the complex interplay and impact of in/security, education, and development in Africa, it is of great use to graduates and scholars interested in Africa Politics, IPE, security studies and development studies.
