Promoting Good Governance and Wider Civil Society

Participation in Eastern and Southern Africa

edited by Taye Assefa

A collection of twenty-four research papers presented at a regional conference convened by OSSREA on good governance and the roles of civil society, higher education, the media and culture, in promoting progressive governments and societies.

The papers cover six African countries: Botswana, Ethiopia, Lesotho, Sudan, Uganda and Zimbabwe. The subjects include: plural politics in Botswana; indigenous institutions and good governance in Ethiopia; the contribution of the University of Lesotho to civil society through community service; crises in politics and governance in Sudan; Uganda's 'movementocracy' experiment; and the role of the legal disciplines in promoting good governance in Zimbabwe.
