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.
