Leadership, Civil Society and Democratisation in Africa

Case Studies from Eastern Africa

edited by Abdalla Bujra

Major agencies of the democratisation process in Africa are civil society organisations (CSOs). Yet little is known about their internal organisation and dynamics and how these affect their capacity to promote, sustain and consolidate the democratic project in Africa. Using a case study approach, this study analyses the issue of leadership in CSOs and its effects on internal management and activities and in the wider democratic areas. The processes of selection, nature and constitution of leadershp, internal procedures and democratic processes of these organisations are critically examined and reveal a poor culture of internal democracy and ethos. Strengthening this capacity is a central message. The case studies are on South Africa, Botswana, Swaziland, Lesotho, Namibia and Zambia.
