125 years after the Berlin Conference: it is time for a new cooperation in a globalized world
Mapinduzi Unit is a group of people, women and men, Africans and Europeans, who have worked for years with and for initiatives, organizations and movements in Africa. We have just created a space for reflection and creation around change in Africa. This space is meant to be mixed, free, productive, courageous and open to new ideas. At the same time he aspires to capitalize on diverse experiences and make them accessible to others.
In all modesty we want to contribute to the fact that – in a rapidly changing and dizzy world – people in Africa are becoming actors of change instead of remaining helpless victims. Instead of seeing and using Africa as a projection surface for myths, prejudices and generalities, we want to identify, strengthen, make legible and visible its strengths, its creativity and its mostly human potential.
The aim is to highlight in the debate on development cooperation and North-South relations the experiences, views and suggestions of people living and working on different African lands. It is an advocacy and an initiation of dialogue.
We exchange on the following points The question is not whether to co-operate, but how to
Citizenship in the 21st Century?
Who represents the populations?
Traditional chieftains often legitimate but out of scope, beggars or puppets
Peace makers or war makers?
Good reading and the adventure continues
