Neoliberalism, Civil Society and Security in Africa

Neoliberalism, Civil Society and Security in Africa

by P. Carmody
     
 
Free market policies have been in operation across Africa for the past 25 years, yet they have failed to reverse deepening poverty. This book explores, with case studies, why such policies continue to be implemented and the ways in which they have been reinvented by socialization, depoliticization, regionalization and securitization.
