However, recent manifestations of electoral violence have assumed an unprecedented magnitude and changing form and character, with negative implications for democratic stability and consolidation. This paper analyses electoral violence in Africa, with emphasis on its manifestations, causes, implications and possible solutions. The paper argues that rising electoral violence in Africa is closely connected with the neo-patrimonial character of the African state, the nature of contestation for power, the weak institutionalisation of democratic architectures, including political parties and electoral management bodies EMBs , and the fascinating political economy of electoral violence. Worse still, avenues for democratic redress, including the judiciary and civil society, are also deeply implicated in the deepening contradictions of the state.

State, conflict, and democracy in Africa

By engaging the colonial factor in African conflicts, this article seeks to understand the ineffectiveness of efforts at conflict management in overcoming the disasters that brought the conflicts to the African continent. It claims that conflict in Africa does not always stem primarily from crises of national governance and the failure of governmental institutions in African countries to mediate conflict, and revisits the colonial factor as the root of many conflicts in Africa. The article reconsiders the conflict management and conflict resolution debate and indicts former colonial powers and powerful organisations for maintaining colonial-style approaches to African conflicts at the expense of a desire to address the fundamental issues that divide the parties to the different conflicts. I am sure that none of you would want to rest content with the superficial kind of social analysis that deals mainly with effects and does not grapple with underlying causes Martin Luther King Jr The conflict resolution community seems to pursue conflict resolution efforts in Africa from a variety of purposes and interests and with policies that are often replete with ambiguities and contradictions. This situation may be the reason why many African conflicts may be silenced but remain largely unresolved.

Explaining electoral violence in Africa’s ‘new’ democracies

While the African Union AU is leading overarching efforts to establish continent-wide norms for acceptable political conduct, regional institutions are also contributing substantially to democratization and peacebuilding in their neighborhoods. However, country-level commitment to democratic governance remains uneven and inconsistent.

И повернулся к офицеру. - Вы уверены, что в коробке все его вещи. - Да, конечно, - подтвердил лейтенант. Беккер постоял минуту, уперев руки в бока. Затем поднял коробку, поставил ее на стол и вытряхнул содержимое. Аккуратно, предмет за предметом, перетряхнул одежду.

Но если он посмотрит на монитор и увидит в окне отсчета значение семнадцать часов, то, будьте уверены, не промолчит. Стратмор задумался. - С какой стати он должен на него смотреть? - спросил. Сьюзан взглянула ему в. - Вы хотите отправить его домой. - Нет.

II. Causes and characteristics of conflicts in Africa

Дверь не сдвинулась с места. Она пробовала снова и снова, но массивная плита никак не реагировала. Сьюзан тихо вскрикнула: по-видимому, отключение электричества стерло электронный код. Она опять оказалась в ловушке. Внезапно сзади ее обхватили и крепко сжали чьи-то руки.

 - Да тут несколько тысяч долларов. - Я действую по инструкции, сэр.  - Пилот повернулся и скрылся в кабине. Дверца за ним захлопнулась. Беккер спустился вниз, постоял, глядя на самолет, потом опустил глаза на пачку денег в руке.

Помахав карточкой теннисного клуба Мериленда, он рявкнул: - Полиция. После чего вошел в номер и включил свет. Немец не ожидал такого оборота. - Wasmachst… - Помолчите! - Беккер перешел на английский.  - У вас в номере проститутка? - Он оглядел комнату. Роскошная обстановка, как в лучших отелях. Розы, шампанское, широченная кровать с балдахином.

Электронная почта соединила безопасность обычной почты со скоростью телефонной связи. С тех пор как сообщения стали передаваться по подземным волоконно-оптическим линиям, а не с помощью радиоволн, они оказались полностью защищенными от перехвата - таков по крайней мере был замысел. В действительности перехват электронных писем, передвигаемых по Интернету, был детской забавой для технических гуру из АНБ. Интернет не был создан, как считали многие, в эру домашних персональных компьютеров.

Иной раз человек в моем положении… - Он замялся, словно принимая трудное решение.  - Иногда человек в моем положении вынужден лгать людям, которых любит. Сегодня как раз такой день.  - В глазах его читалась печаль.  - То, что сейчас скажу, я не собирался говорить никому.
