Globalisation, democracy and the New Partnership for Africa\'s Development (NEPAD)

AO Olutayo, AO Omobowale

Abstract


The imposition of the New World Economic Agenda, midwifed especially in Africa, through the Structural Adjustment Programme, and referred to as globalization, is given supremacy or value only through liberal democracy. This is explicitly acknowledged in the NEPAD document without taking cognizance of the fundamental basis on which even liberal democracy subsists.

It is the position of this paper that the realization of Africa\'s development requires certain level of basic economic right for the people within and sustainable economic and political empowerment in the New World Order.
