This book was produced in the framework of the United Nations University (UNU) African Regional Perspectives project, conducted by the African Bureau of the Third World Forum (TWF) and the network of African researchers associated with it. We would like here to thank the UNU, which met a large part of the financing of this programme, and the Swedish agency, SAREC, which gives generous and constant support to the African Bureau of the Third World Forum. But, of course, in the hallowed formula, the opinions expressed here are those of their authors only and in no way commit the institutions mentioned.
