  • Introduction

    • Authors: Edalina Rodrigues Sanches, José Jaime Macuane, Chipo Dendere
      Abstract: Some thirty years ago, Benin’s Conférence des Forces Vives de la Nation paved the way for the end of Mathieu Kérékou rule and inaugurated a new democratic order in country (Banégas, 1995; Bratton & van de Walle, 1997). The successful transition in Benin pioneered the wave of democratisation in Africa and the demise of formal one-party rule in most countries. In the backcloth of domestic and international pressures, incumbent authoritarian parties embarked in significant liberalisation reforms, from the early 1990s-on, leading up to landmark constitutional revisions, and the introduction of laws allowing the formation of political parties, and the realisation of multiparty elections, for the first time ever or in decades. By mid-1990s virtually all countries had organised a round of competitive multiparty elections (Bratton, 1998; Bratton & van de Walle, 1997). Initial appraisals qualified the African democratic wave as political “miracle” or “second independence” (Joseph, 1991, p. 1...

    • Authors: Clara Carvalho
      Abstract: New Asian Approaches to Africa é uma obra que se impunha para o conhecimento das relações preferenciais entre diferentes países asiáticos e o continente africano. Organizado por Takuo Iwata, professor de Relações Internacionais no College of International Relations, Ritsumeikan University no Japão, o livro reúne as comunicações ao seminário homónimo realizado na Universidade de Quioto, Japão, em novembro de 2018 e analisa as relações com África dos países asiáticos com programas de parceria e cooperação no continente (Japão, China, Coreia do Sul, Índia). O livro é enriquecido pela introdução de Takuo Iwata, um cientista político que se dedica à questão das relações entre os países asiáticos e africanos. O organizador começa por delinear a história e a estratégia dos diferentes países asiáticos em África, contextualizando as relações de cooperação e os diferentes atores, as suas prioridades e múltiplas facetas. A cooperação dos países asiáticos em África adquire novos contornos que nã...

  • 25 Anos de Política Nacional de Saúde na República da Guiné-Bissau:
           Memórias do seu Planeamento Estratégico em Saúde

    • Authors: Cátia Sá Guerreiro, Zulmira Hartz, Paulo Ferrinho, Philip J. Havik
      Abstract: A República da Guiné-Bissau (RGB), um Estado frágil marcado por um contexto de instabilidade política e institucional, tem feito desde 1993 o exercício do Planeamento Estratégico para o Sector da Saúde (PES). Os documentos estratégicos sectoriais – Planos Nacionais de Desenvolvimento Sanitário (PNDS) – demonstram capacidade de resistir às adversidades governativas. Esta revisão longitudinal das políticas pretende fazer memória deste exercício com duplo propósito: analisar os processos de PES e destes guardar memória, como trilhos de um passado que permitem entender e contextualizar caminhos percorridos. Constata-se que o PES ocorreu sobretudo respondendo às exigências dos financiadores, nem sempre sendo implementado. Com a implementação do PNDS III (2018-2022), ambiciona-se reverter esta situação com uma estratégia integradora dos diferentes atores em saúde.

  • O Conflito de Casamansa e as Relações de Poderna Senegâmbia: Senegal,
           Guiné-Bissau e Gâmbia

    • Authors: Antonieta Rosa Gomes
      Abstract: O conflito de Casamansa é um conflito armado de secessão no sul do Senegal, com início em 1982, quando o Movimento das Forças Democráticas de Casamansa (MFDC) se opôs ao governo senegalês, reivindicando a independência da região de Casamansa. Este conflito tem efeitos transfronteiriços para os países vizinhos do Senegal, que são a Guiné-Bissau e a Gâmbia, que têm em comum alguns grupos étnicos, como o Jola, maioritário em Casamansa, que também faz parte do Movimento das Forças Democráticas de Casamansa. A proximidade das fronteiras e as ligações interétnicas têm influenciado o conflito e as relações de poder entre os três países. Embora a Guiné-Bissau e a Gâmbia tenham adotado posição oficial de neutralidade, o governo senegalês não tem demonstrado total confiança nessa posição.

  • Democracy, Governance and Legitimacy in Zimbabwe since the November 2017
           Military Coup

    • Authors: Aaron Rwodzi
      Abstract: This article focuses on the democracy and legitimacy debates in Zimbabwe after the ouster of Robert Mugabe from power by his erstwhile ally, Emmerson Mnangagwa, in November 2017. President Mnangagwa popularized the terms “Second Republic” and “New Dispensation” to show that his regime differed from Mugabe’s in terms of governance style. The position of this article is that Mnangagwa’s regime could not abandon the system established under the reign of Mugabe. Instead, it argues that the Second Republic reflects continuities of the Mugabe era being transposed into a quasi-military edifice whose commandist approaches denigrate cries for democracy and transparency. This qualitative research draws on data from interviews with political elites in the opposition and ruling parties as well as secondary sources.

  • Tweeting to Democracy: A new anti-authoritarian liberation struggle in
           Zimbabwe

    • Authors: Chipo Dendere
      Abstract: What does it take for a citizen movement to topple a deep-rooted authoritarian regime' This paper analyses the successes and failures of citizen-led social media campaigns in Zimbabwe. Using data drawn from an extensive ethnographic study of 50 WhatsApp and Facebook communities, this paper studies the conditions under which citizen activism, particularly those movements that originate on social media, become street protests that can effectively unseat an illegitimate regime. I find that the success of recent movements – evidenced by policy changes and increased citizen participation – is in part because of the rise of a youth citizenry that does not feel indebted to the liberation struggle. Zimbabwean born frees are more willing to take political risks by speaking candidly about politics online and mobilizing their peers.

  • The Effect of Electoral Violence on Electoral Participation in Africa

    • Authors: Carlos Shenga, Amílcar Pereira
      Abstract: Systematic African studies have revealed that electoral violence tends to have a negative impact driving Africans away from participating in elections. However, by using a multidimensional approach to electoral violence and electoral participation, combined with a recent dynamic from the 2016 to 2018 Afrobarometer public opinion surveys of 33 African countries, this study finds the opposite. Africans who perceived electoral violence were more likely to attend an election campaign rally and vote. Instead of being used by the incumbent to prevent the opposition supporters from voting, electoral violence appears to motivate those who perceive it to participate. However, whilst election violence may increase electoral participation, this malpractice is not conducive for consolidating democracy or fostering support for, or satisfaction with, democracy.

  • The Role of the Courts in Mitigating Election Violence in Nigeria

    • Authors: Stephanie M. Burchard, Meshack Simati
      Abstract: Violence occurs in a slight majority of elections held in sub-Saharan Africa. Several recent studies have examined the effectiveness of various interventions on the prevalence of violent elections; however, the role of the courts has been relatively less studied. Using data on electoral violence during the 2015 and 2019 Nigerian elections, we examine under what conditions courts can moderate election-related violence. We find that successfully challenging an election outcome in the courts is related to a reduction in the lethality of violence in the next election, but only if the courts are generally perceived as trustworthy. These findings indicate that in addition to building judicial capability, improving generalized trust in judicial institutions is key to reducing electoral violence.

  • As Eleições Legislativas de 2018. Acerca da Sobrevivência da Democracia
           em São Tomé e Príncipe

    • Authors: Augusto Nascimento
      Abstract: Este texto procura descrever e analisar o devir histórico e as contingências do sistema democrático em São Tomé e Príncipe. Em particular, pretende realçar o significado político das eleições de 7 de outubro de 2018, que se revelaram um marco da democracia no arquipélago. Este texto procura recensear pontos de reflexão sobre a sobrevivência da democracia num contexto micro-insular em África. Ao invés de equacionar a viabilidade da democracia representativa à luz de uma presumida idiossincrasia africana, avalia-se a sintonia do apriorismo da superioridade da democracia com as escolhas dos são-tomenses, frequentemente menos baseadas em princípios políticos do que, por exemplo, na adesão a homens fortes e a projetos salvíficos, tal um dos dados da cultura política prevalecente nas ilhas.

  • Elections in Cape Verde, 1991-2016: Testing the second-order election
           model in a consolidated semi-presidential African democracy

    • Authors: José Santana Pereira, Susana Rogeiro Nina, Danielton Delgado
      Abstract: In this article, we analyse patterns of turnout and electoral choices of Cape Verde’s citizens in different types of elections, looking at all legislative, presidential and local elections held between 1991 and 2016, and testing four hypotheses derived from the second-order election model about differences in terms of turnout, number of spoiled/blank papers, results for the incumbent party and the electoral success of smaller parties. Our results show that, in what regards turnout and electoral behaviour, local elections present the features of second-order elections much more clearly than the presidential elections in this semi-presidential regime. However, this pattern does not necessarily mean that voters look at the latter as less second-order, but since they often took place in the honeymoon period of the legislative electoral cycle, it may only mean that there were lower incentives to punish the incumbent and/or disengage from political participation.
