Résumé

The Council for the Development of Social Science Research in Africa, CODESRIA, held its 13th General Assembly, 5-9 December 2011, in Rabat, Morocco. The theme of the scientific conference was : « Africa and the Challenges of the Twenty-first Century ». Some of the reasons that influenced the choice of this theme were to do with how Africa should position itself in the new global political and economic order in the context of an increasingly complex neoliberal globalization.

This book contains the statutory lectures of the 13th General Assembly. Each one of them speaks to major challenges that Africa and the Global South are facing in this second decade of the Twenty-first Century : neoliberal globalization; capital flight; the land question; gender relations, with a particular focus on matriarchy; and universalism.
