People’s power would be good initially, but as soon as the first problems emerge then a community would not be able to efficiently decide on the best course of action. When problems develop, people will try to solve them according to their own interests, so there will be the necessity of a supranational authority which creates new laws and then executes them. Without such authority, the community would not be able to come to an agreement and especially they would not be able to enforce the laws. Marx’s communism does not take into account also immigration. In conclusion, communism as described by Marx would represent a perfect type of government, where the citizens have the power, and where everybody is equal.
Should they be granted unlimited access to the mines in the Katanga region, China will thus provide aid; but this will on the other hand mean that China will be able to control the province’s invaluable resources, which in turn bestows upon them considerable political weight. This will also inevitably limit the government’s ability to control how the region’s resources are being exploited because the Chinese government will use the occurring infrastructure projects as leverage (Jansson, Burke, and Jaing, 2009:
Agendas that international organizations attend to differs from time to time and that are shaped by the things that are happening within the international regime and one of the persistent topics are based on the attempt to regulate social, political and economic problems that a number of countries are facing. The problem of development particularity the developing countries such as Uganda is an agenda that development programmes such as the Millennium Development Goals “MDGs are a set of ambitious targets for reducing poverty, inequality and child mortality, and for promoting education, health and a better environment in the Third World” (Jackson and Sorensen, Introduction to International Relations: Theories & Approaches 2010).

The Berlin Conference: Leopold II and the Congo Free State Introduction Political issues such as mismanagement, dictatorship and corruption characterize some of the most severe challenges facing the Democratic Republic of Congo. The importance of the situation could be explained by the continuous number of dictatorial challenges on Congo soil. Most assumptions and features of this study are already obvious; however, political issues in the Congo cannot only be attributed to the physical challenges such as dictatorship, mismanagement and corruption. The influence of Western European countries during and after colonisation plays a vital role. In broad terms, this paper explores Belgian colonialism in the Congo and how it contributed to its
“Then, of course, the terror in the Congo was sanctioned by the authorities. For a white man to rebel meant challenging the system that provided your livelihood. Everyone around you was participating. By going along with the system, you were paid, promoted, awarded medals. So men who would have been appalled to see someone using a chicotte on the streets of Brussels or Paris or Stockholm
Statism was therefore adopted in Cameroon under Amadu Ahidjo as the solution to fight against discrimination, poverty, marginalization and consequently the best way to handle the post-colonial state and has also been used by the present regime headed by Biya to foster integration especially with the marginalization of the English-speaking part of the country. Fifty years after independence, statism as a development model has produced the opposite of its result in Cameroon. It has led to a highly centralized system with power concentrated in the hands of a few, created a sophisticated bureaucracy which has ensured the continuous expansion of corruption in the country. The essay will try to examine the concept of corrupt by looking at various perspectives to the concept, investigate the cause and factors that facilitate the continuous expansion of corruption in Cameroon while taking into consideration the complex relations that are created and the different context and perceptions of corruption. The essay will examine
The Congo River forms in a country that was known as the Congo Free State now named the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), (Turcky, J.H. & Smith, 1818:2). The River plays an important and vital role in the novella. In Conrad’s view, the river acts as a limiting factor, keeping Marlow separated from the natives and the evil ways of Kurtz. The River not only allows Marlow to see both sides of the continent but enables him to see both sides of the situation.
Foreign aid has forced many governments to shift some of their responsibility from guaranteeing their citizens rights to pleasing donors so as to maintain good ties. It makes governments less accountable to their citizens and has led to civil wars, rampant corruption (electoral and otherwise) and has been central to an undercurrent of irresponsibility culminating in increased and self-reinforcing poverty since independence from colonialism. (Mukanga, 2009). Systems are put in place that promotes poverty which is then used to justify foreign aid. During an interview for his documentary Poverty Inc, Michael Matheson Miller said, “They are not poor primarily because they lack stuff; they are poor because they are excluded by the institutions of justice.
The suppression of racist commentary can in fact render racist mind-sets more persistent. This challenge is considered from the dual perspective of the legacy created by the TRC during the emergence of democracy as well as the dynamic relationship between law and society. Thereafter a conclusion is presented.
An example of one would be the president promoting the vision. When the vision was first introduced by Thabo Mbeki, he always promoted it whereas now we have a president which does not promote it. Because we had a president who promoted it we all knew about it and it was always at the back of our minds to bring that vision to life and make it a reality. There are plenty of challenges which contribute to the downfall of the African Renaissance but I will only mention a few in this assignment.I will dioceses the ways in which poverty effect the African Renaissance. In the end I will bring them all together and explain how it all played a role to challenge the African
