Afrocentric Perspectives on Neo-Liberal Globalization
Abstract:This chapter examines African perspectives on globalization. The work situates the key issues undergirding the discourse on globalization in the real world of the African people. It assesses the impact of globalization on African life, and attempts a comparative analysis of global flow of capital, amenities, and labor. It highlights the urgent and critical issues confronting the African working classes and how globalization can become meaningful to them. In this regard it points to several issues which globalization needs to factor into its geometry. Finally, the chapter highlights how all these connect to the African Diaspora and proposes the role they can play in the unfolding phenomenon.
