Prof Ernest Wamba dia Wamba, 1942-2020: Wamba-dia-Wamba is no longer with us!

15. Juli 2020 - 21:09

It is with a deep sense of loss and sadness that CODESRIA wishes to announce the passing on of the Congolese scholar and stateman Professor Ernest Wamba-dia-Wamba. Wamba-dia-Wamba was a brilliant political theorist noted for his ground-breaking work on democracy, social movements and emancipative politics in Africa. He taught in many universities including the University of Dar es Salaam, Harvard University, Boston College, and Brandeis University.
Prof. Wamba-dia-Wamba was a scholar who sought to actualize his ideas through participation and intervention in major political processes. He was an active participant in the civil rights movement in the US where he studied. He was imprisoned and exiled from his country due to his thought and activism. He was later to lead one of the rebel groups- Rally for Congolese Democracy- during what is often described as the Second Congo War in the 1990s and then served as a senator in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Wamba-dia-Wamba was an influential member of and an active participant in the activities of CODESRIA. He published a lot with CODESRIA. His edited volume with Mahmood Mamdani, published by CODESRIA in 1985- African Studies in Social Movements and Democracy- remains a classic. He also served as the President of the Council from 1992-1995. Wamba-dia-Wamba will be sorely missed for his erudition that was often masked by his remarkably unassuming character. CODESRIA along with the entire African scholarly community in the Social Sciences and Humanities extend its condolences to the family of Wamba-dia-Wamba. May his soul rest in perfect peace.

CODESRIA will issue a longer tribute in honour of Prof. Wamba-dia-Wamba in soon.

White Ferocity:The Genocides of Non-Whites and Non-Aryans from 1492 to Date

13. Juli 2020 - 21:49

White Ferocity:The Genocides of Non-Whites and Non-Aryans from 1492 to Date. CODESRIA, Dakar, 2020, ISBN : 978-2-86978-723-0

The slave trade, the conquest of the Americas and the invasion of Africa have deeply transformed the relations between Europeans and other groups. The jump from difference to superiority and racial hierarchy was so swift that it led to the moral collapse of Europe and North America. By shifting the devaluation of so-called ‘inferior' beings from non-Whites to non-Aryans, Nazism committed the unforgivable crime of bringing into the heart of the European world a ferocity up to then reserved for other continents. In this book, White Ferocity: The Genocides of Non-Whites and Non-Aryans from 1492 to Date, Plumelle-Uribe investigates and demonstrates, with harrowing evidence and analyses, how Europeans justified the destruction of other peoples as unavoidable based on the officially declared belief of others being inferior.

Rosa Amelia Plumelle-Uribe is a lawyer and essayist from Colombia based in France. Her historical essays denounce white sovereignty, slave trafficking and massacres of indigenous peoples in Africa and the Americas. Works by Plumelle-Uribe include Traite des Blancs, traites des Noirs (L'Harmattan, 2008); Victimes des esclavagistes musulmans, chrétiens et juifs (Anibwé, 2012); 13 novembre 2015. Victimes innocentes des guerres (Anibwé, 2016); and contributions in collected works such as Esclavage, colonisation, libérations nationales (L'Harmattan, 2000), Déraison, esclavage et droit (UNESCO, 2006), Crimes de l'histoire et réparations (Bruylant, 2004), and 50 ans après, quelle indépendance pour l'Afrique (Philippe Rey, 2010) among others.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Rosa Amelia Plumelle-Uribe's book needed to be written; now it must be read. The magnitude of the crimes described in detail in this book cannot be disputed. ...In my view one might be tempted to say all this belongs to the past. But it should not be an excuse to forget history and the questions that still affect the reality of our world. The year 1492 is not a random date. Not the year of the ‘discovery of America'. The year 1492 is when the conquest and destruction of the Americas by Europeans began. Plumelle-Uribe is right to say that the ferocity of the Nazis is not an anomalous, inexplicable occurrence. It is integral to the rationale for implementing ferocity, which, I once again stress, is inherent to capitalism. To understand where this ferocity originates, look at the logic of capital: accumulate, accumulate, regardless of the price (in human terms).”
Samir Amin (1931–2018) Professor of Economics and former Director of Third World Forum, Dakar, Senegal

Rosa Amelia Plumelle-Uribe's work will be struck down by those who glancing through it will form their opinions on the basis of the table of contents, and those who spending just a little more time, but not much, will in one fell swoop dismiss that this Black woman writing about Black people has the distance allowed to anyone speaking about the history of the calamities which have happened where they come from.

Call for Papers: Women in Politics

19. Juni 2020 - 19:05

The struggle for women's participation in public affairs and the political life of their countries as equal actors has been an enduring feature of the entire period since independence in Africa.

From being integral players in the mass mobilisation and campaigns, both civic and armed, that ushered the countries of the continent to independence, women were subsequently to be relegated to the margins of the state and nation-building efforts that were embarked upon by a succession of regimes soon after national political freedom from formal and direct colonial rule had been won. Across the continent, women and their concerns were consigned to a residual category in various aspects of national life on arguments that ranged from the outrightly outrageous, unedifying, and embarrassing to the patently ignorant, mischievous, and frivolous.

These arguments purported invariably to explain why women could not be entrusted with public responsibilities and roles as full and equal participants and citizens. They continue to be deployed even to this day, more than six decades after the first African country became independent and despite a massive campaign of awareness underwritten by women and their organizations. Though mostly packaged and justified on grounds of culture, tradition, and religion, the arguments in fact reflect and bear the hallmarks of an embedded patriarchy and the relations of power woven into it that have always instinctively privileged men over women in politics, the economy and society.

Over the years since independence, it has been the historic responsibility of women to exercise agency and organize themselves and others to try to contest and overcome marginalisation, discrimination, stigma and domination. They have done so to building local and global alliances and using a variety of strategies and tactics. Within individual countries, despite an unevenness of organizational capacity and results obtained, many have worked alone and together to mobilise opinion and action in order to push the case and leverage opportunities for better and greater voice, presence, and participation in the public domain and in decision-making. Through the various women's organizations they created to press for change towards a more inclusive system of governance in which they are able and enabled to play an equal role, successes were registered in forcing open the door of patriarchy even if progress has remained slow and uneven within and across different countries. From spirited and sustained campaigns in support of the education of the girl-child and against such harmful “traditional” practices as female genital incision and breast pressing to intense advocacy for a greater gender diversity in public administration, the formal/organized private sector, and party politics, indefatigable struggles were waged to tame and overcome the worst forms of patriarchy.

As it pertains specifically to their political participation, the thrust of much of the struggles waged by successive generations of women over the years has been, in an incremental manner, first to overcome total exclusion and cynical tokenism and then strive towards winning a seat by right at the table of decision-making with full powers and on equal terms. Arguments deployed to justify locking women out of political participation, including the notion that the place of the “decent” woman is in the house—were confronted head on with counter-arguments demonstrating just how political the personal also is. The idea that women are only good for adding colour to and entertaining audiences at political rallies with dances or being lined up on election day to vote as directed by political barons was roundly challenged as was the resort by male political leaders to offering token appointments to women in a bid, mostly cynical, to satisfy appearances but not necessarily change anything in relation to the asymmetries of power that exclude and penalise women. As counterarguments, women's rights activists lost no opportunity to note that the male domination of politics in Africa has fed political violence and instability and corruption and mismanagement, among many other ills that have plagued the continent since independence. Suggestions have been made frequently enough that women, if opportuned, might just do a much better job than the male politicians.

Campaigns for political reform and change waged domestically in various countries by women and their organizations were also extended to the regional and international levels using all available platforms and opportunities. Particularly significant in this regard were the platforms offered by the United Nations (UN) family of organizations, the African Union (AU) and the various African Regional Economic Communities. From the 1994 Cairo UN Population Conference to the 1995 Beijing Conference to the AU's 2003 Maputo Conference and the 2008 SADC summit, decisions were adopted on these various platforms and occasions that boosted the campaign by women for greater and more equal political participation as much in local affairs as in continental and global affairs. The UN Millenium Development Goals and their successor Sustainable Development Goals were deliberately leveraged too to advance the local and global causes for women's equality. Thus, it was that a spate of policy commitments and conventions came to be adopted and which, today, despite their limitations, serve as a useful framework for measuring and assessing progress within and among nations. Some of the targets set at the Beijing Conference and those included in such outcome documents as the AU's Maputo Declaration and the SADC Gender Protocol have, thanks primarily to the efforts of women themselves, been refracted back into domestic political and policy processes and taken further, with success in some instances, towards a “50-50” and “Zebra” agenda for the equal participation of women. The gender equality aspirations of women, including their better representation in parliament, have also been written into the national constitutions of several countries and become embedded in the policy practices of the AU and the RECs.

There is no doubt that, today, Africa boasts a growing number of countries where the representation and participation of women in politics has registered significant progress, with Rwanda standing out as one of the very best performers on a global scale. Rwanda is not alone; Kenya, Namibia, Senegal and South Africa are among the countries that have also registered and even sustained major progress. However, despite the progress that has been made, few will doubt that much more remains to be done even as efforts need to continue to be invested to ensure that the progress registered is not reversed and the women who enter into decision-making institutions are empowered to play their role in full. It is here that this research project has been deemed necessary as a contribution to both achieving a better understanding of the dynamics of women's political participation and contributing to its further deepening and advancement. The need for such a project is further underlined by the unspoken but widespread assumption that a huge proportion of women in political office function mostly as "flower girls", to use a Kenyan parlance, who merely serve "decorative" purposes in places such as parliament whilst religiously doing the bidding of the party, the political godfather, or the president.

The project aims, at a broad level, to undertake an assessment of the extent to which women who have gained a significant entry into institutions of power and decision-making have been effective in advocating and advancing the agenda of women's equality in Africa. More specifically, the project seeks to :

a. Better understand the motivation and agendas that propel women who participate in politics and succeed in winning an entry into the mainstream of the political processes and institutions of their countries;
b. Examine the interfaces, if any, between the agendas of the women in politics and the specific goal of advancing the equality of women in society generally and political decision-making in particular;
c. Explore the dominant influences on women in active political positions that shape the choices which they make as actresses alongside other players in the governance system;
d. Assess the connections between the broader societal and citizen concerns articulated by the women in active political and decision-making and the advancement of the interests of women; and
e. Identify similarities and differences in the political engagements and gender equality agendas of directly elected and nominated female members of parliament with a view to drawing comparative observations about their performance.

Prospective participants in the project are invited to submit an abstract of not more than two pages clearly outlining the specific component of the objectives of the research they wish to engage with and how they intend to do so. Authors of abstracts accepted will be invited to develop full papers for further consideration. Preference will be given to abstracts and papers that are grounded in solid field work and backed with empirical data. Out of the papers, a book on the contemporary politics of women's participation in Africa will be published and a set of policy recommendation will also be issued separately for use in further refining policies and campaigns.

DEADLINES :

  • Abstracts will be received up to 15 July 2020.
  • The draft papers of authors of shortlisted abstracts will be required by 30 September 2020.
  • Final revised papers for peer review and publication will be expected by 30 October 2020.

PARTNER ORGANIZATIONS:
Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SIDA) and the International Institute for Democracy and Electoral Assistance (International IDEA)

CONTACTS:
All abstracts should be sent by email to: c.yafika@idea.int with a copy to executive.secretary@codesria.org.
