AFC 313 - Contemporary Africa: the Struggle & Prospects for Development is designed as a survey of Africa’s contemporary political economy. In examining post-colonial efforts at development, the course focuses on a cross-section of regional and national strategies for social transformation. Among subjects emphasized are economic cooperation and coordination initiatives on the continent, side by side with domestic and/or external constraints on national socioeconomic developmental efforts. The course also compares and contrasts Africa’s major socioeconomic trends and performances with those of Latin America & the Caribbean and Asia and Pacific regions. This course meets the Global Awareness  category of the General Education  program because its survey of the contemporary political-economic conditions of Africa will help to provide EMU students with a global perspective on forms of development in the contemporary world. Such a global perspective on development is all the more necessary, given the leadership role that the United States and Western Europe play within the international community.
