Abstract:During late 2000, a number of German scholars in the field of African studies initiated a policy debate through a widely circulated and publicly discussed 'Afrika Memorandum'. It offers a new conceptual aproach to foreign and aid policy issues on Africa, centred on the notion of structural stability. The Nordic Africa Institute in Uppsala took the initiative to arrange an exchange between some of these German scholars and a wider Nordic audience, both based in policy and aid institutions. A Consultative workshop on structural stability in an African context took place at the Institute on 31 March and 1 April 2003. This collective volume contains revised versions of the contributions to the workshop. Contents: Economic aspects of the African crisis: low-level equilibria, traps and structural instability, by Robert Kappel; Comments on Robert Kappel, by Anders Danielson; 'Structural stability': a leitmotiv for African policies? Background and ambition, by Andreas Mehler; The New Partnership for Africa's Development (NEPAD): a step towards structural stability?, by Henning Melber. [ASC Leiden abstract]
