Looking Beyond Spring: An African Perspective on the Arab Revolt in World Order.

There is a great deal of misunderstanding today about the African Union’s decision not to endorse the military intervention in Libya undertaken by France, Great Britain, and the United States in conjunction with several Arab States. Speculations abound as to whether the uniform decision coming out of Africa indicates that the African Union is out of step with the spirit of freedom sweeping across North Africa and the Arab World; or whether the absence of Africa in the battlefield of Libya merely suggests military ineptitude and political bankruptcy. Underlying the African objection to military intervention is a longstanding tension between international organizations that represent Africa, on one hand, and self-identified representatives of the West, on the other.  It is not accurate to say that the African Union has been indifferent to the conflict in Libya.

African Democracy: Elections Despite Divisions.

Electoral violence in a number of sub-Sahara countries has prompted some Africa watchers to question whether the United States and other Western countries should be prioritizing “free, fair and credible” elections when the process so often polarizes a country rather than unifying it around democratic institutions and practices. Nevertheless, I believe the United States and other westerners should continue to do what they can to support Africans working to build free, fair, and peaceful democracies, not least because Africans themselves want elections, and there are no good alternatives.

Nigerian man and family win deportation challenge.

AN IRISH woman, her Nigerian husband and Irish-born daughter have won their High Court challenge to an order for his deportation made while the woman was pregnant with the child. The man had arrived here in March 2009 but his applications for asylum and subsidiary protection were rejected. In October 2010 an order was made for his deportation; he was arrested in January 2011 and deported about a month later.
