Description

The link between security and development has been rediscovered after 9/11 by a broad range of scholars. Focussing on southern Africa, The Security-Development Nexus shows that the much-debated linkage is by no means a recent invention. Rather, the security/development linkage 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 be prospering 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 the 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, disarmament and reintegration programmes and the different trajectories democratization has taken in different parts of the region.

Reviews

Extract from review by Gerhard Hugo (Institute for Security Studies) in African Security Review Vol. 16 No. 4 (December 2007) pp. 118-120:

"The book contains a valuable collection of essays on the security/development nexus from a historical and an institutional perspective. It provides the reader with interesting case studies about current problems relating to security and development, while exploring new areas that contribute to the development security debate. This book is recommended to scholars with an interest not only in security and development but also in the history and current developments in Southern Africa. It provides a refreshing look at some of the problems experienced in the Southern African region."
