Using theory, empirical research, and case studies, this book explores the changing nature of business in Africa and how businesses can actively contribute to the development of Africa. It uses (and critically analyses) the concept of Africapitalism – a management philosophy and movement which seeks to blend the best of African values and Western management theories as a basis for sustainable development in Africa – to understand the subtle factors that underpin business decisions in Africa. The collection of chapters in this book are organized around actors, issues, and reflections. They collectively present an account of Africapitalism, albeit from different perspectives and on different issues, and open up a new space for rethinking business and society relations in Africa from an Africapitalism perspective. Crucial is the critical engagement with both the discourse and practice of Africapitalism and its implications for sustainable development. It is anticipated that the challenges and opportunities highlighted by the book would be embraced by researchers, policy makers, and practitioners in the broad area of business and society in Africa. This multidisciplinary book will be valuable reading for advanced students, researchers and policymakers looking at business in society; corporate social responsibility; sustainable business; international business and African development.

This book uses Nigeria’s Afri-capitalist and South Africa’s Ubuntu Business models as case studies that reconcile the tension between Africa Rising and Pan African economics, presenting their convergence as Africa’s viable Third Way route to global development. In presenting Afri-capitalism and Ubuntu Business as national, business sector manifestations of a “new” Pan Africanism, the author explores Africa’s “culturalist” path in engaging the international political economy. This is an African customized engagement that parallels the alternative models of China’s “market-socialism” and Latin America’s “21st C Socialism”. All present alternatives to realist, liberal, and structuralist standpoints, inclining instead toward constructivist political economies derived from the perspectives and subject conditions of African economic histories, socio-cultures, alternative modernities, and agent-led initiatives.

Over the past few decades, corporations have been neglected in studies of international political economy (IPE). Seeking to demystify them, what they are, how they behave and their goals and constraints, this Handbook introduces the corporation as a unit of analysis for students of IPE. Providing critical discussion of their global and domestic power, and highlighting the ways in which corporations interact with each other and with their socio-political environment, this Handbook presents a thorough and up-to-date overview of the main debates around the role of corporations in the global political economy.

Economic development that meets the needs of the global population without jeopardizing the capacity of future generations is a worldwide challenge for multinational enterprises (MNEs). They are expected to balance their role as global economic actors and environmental stewards in the environment in which they operate. Contributors from India, Europe and the United States offer new perspectives, contrasting US, European and emerging economies’ approaches to sustainability, and how they can generate roadmaps which yield innovative solutions for one of the most contentious issues of our era. Their review suggests that the differential performance across developed and emerging economies has exposed potential weaknesses. Emerging Dynamics of Sustainability in Multinational Enterprises promotes greater emphasis on experimenting with unique local and sustainable approaches to solving problems faced by firms in, or from, emerging economies. This is a critical resource for researchers, practitioners and policy-makers concerned with sustainable development issues, and a fresh reference for graduate level students and academics focusing on corporate governance, sustainable development and ethics, as well as multinational enterprise management.

The Emergence Of Sustainability Reporting Sr Among Select Countries From Sub Saharan Africa

This dissertation investigates how locally developed codes of corporate governance and industry-led best practices have instigated the emergence of sustainability reporting (SR) in South Africa, Mauritius and Kenya. Though there has been past inquiry into the necessity for corporate accountability in Africa, there is a research gap in how SR practices meaningfully enable corporations operating on the continent to address deeply embedded developmental challenges. Moreover, a significant portion of SR related research has been skewed towards evidence drawn from Western economies, predominantly overlooking narratives from emerging and developing countries. The study therefore, contributes to understanding what institutional factors influence and shape the extent of SR among corporations operating in Africa. The findings demonstrate that SR disclosures hinge on issues pertaining to community engagement, specifically, corporate initiatives geared at promoting training, education, healthcare and overall socio-economic development of local communities. The main proposition is that fostering SR within emerging markets can aid in bridging the gap between broad socio-economic development goals and corporate action. The results also indicate that institutional factors pertaining to governance, economic and cultural systems have a positive and significant effect on the extent of SR observed. In addition, there is evidence suggesting the influence of mandatory reporting requirements and company specific characteristics on the extent of SR in South Africa, Mauritius and Kenya. While institutional theory is the prevailing paradigm adopted by the study, local conceptualizations of Africapitalism and Ubuntuism are also examined and quantified to explore their influence on the degree of SR. Both concepts provide an alternative lens to comprehending SR as they are emblematic of the strong community mentality present in African society. Ultimately.

Explore the discontent of the African young as they engage each other despite political repression and white perceptions. These essays are the first of a series published by youth representatives of a small and scattered society. Each volume brings the Author's opinion on select issues and his or her views on public and personal revolution to public notice. Afrikaman is a statement of a personality which is neither tribal nor colonial. It is anything but Afrocentric. In passing, it argues against Achebe on the role of art in African society, Elumelu on Africapitalism, an unknown fraudster on 419 and Soyinka on religion. It does this in a hurried style that is both academic and street-wise without attempting to be either.

Translation Revisited

How realistic is it to expect translation to render the world intelligible in a context shaped by different historical trajectories and experiences? Can we rely on human universals to translate through the unique and specific webs of meaning that languages represent? If knowledge production is a kind of translation, then it is fair to assume that the possibility of translation has largely rested on the idea that Western experience is the repository of these human universals against the background of which different human experiences can be rendered intelligible. The problem with this assumption, however, is that there are limits to Western claims to universalism, mainly because these claims were at the service of the desire to justify imperial expansion. This book addresses issues arising from these claims to universalism in the process of producing knowledge about diverse African social realities. It shows that the idea of knowledge production as translation can be usefully deployed to inquire into how knowledge of Africa translates into an imperial attempt at changing local norms, institutions and spiritual values. Translation, in this sense, is the normalization of meanings issuing from a local historical experience claiming to be universal. The task of producing knowledge of African social realities cannot be adequately addressed without a prior critical engagement with how translation has come to shape our ways of rendering Africa intelligible.
