Item description for The Security-Development Nexus: Expressions of Sovereignty and Securitization in Southern Africa by Lars Buur...
The link between security and development has drawn world-wide attention since 9/11. Focussing on southern Africa, The Security-Development Nexus shows that the much debated linkage between security and development is not a recent phenomenon. Rather, it has been an important element of the state policies of colonial as well as post-colonial regimes during the Cold War and it seems to prosper in new configurations under the present wave of democratic transitions. Contributors focus on a variety of contexts from South Africa, Mozambique, and Namibia to Zimbabwe and Democratic Congo; they explore this nexus and our understanding of security and development through the prism of peace-keeping interventions, community policing, human rights, gender, land contests, squatters, nation- and state-building, social movements, DDR programs, and the different trajectories democratization have taken in different parts of the region.
