Consolidated Biography


Compilation of papers for the Fifth Congress of OSSREA. The papers treated reform issues pertinent to the continent as a whole, as well as those particular to the sub-region. Theoretical reviews, country case studies comparative studies, historical evaluations on the reform process and their outcomes were encouraged. The contributions were presented under five major sub-themes: political reforms, economic reforms, the socio-economic implications of the political reforms, the socio-political impact of economic reforms, and the development strategies for Africa in the 1990s and beyond. Two volumes of proceedings emerged out of the transactions of the congress. The present volume (vol. 2) deals with political and economic reforms, transformations and gender issues.
