Forging African Communities
Naser I. Faruqui, Asit K. Biswas, and Murad J. Bino eds. In the Middle East and North Africa, water is rapidly becoming the key development issue.
In response, policymakers have proposed or tried to implement policies such as higher water tariffs or privatization, but have done so without considering local culture and values. Yet culture, including religion, clearly influences how people perceive and manage a resource such as water, and must be considered during policy development. This book presents Islamic perspectives on a number of proposed water-management policies, including water demand management, wastewater reuse, and fair pricing.
The book opens avenues for a wider dialogue amongst researchers working at identifying the most promising water management policies, adds to our knowledge of some of the influences on formal policy and informal practice, and makes these ideas available to a broader public. It dispels common misconceptions about the Islamic view on water-management practices, such as selling water and wastewater reuse, and serves as a concrete example of the benefit of examining development in the context of values and culture.
Initiated in , and currently hosted at the African Gender Institute at the University of Cape Town, it is produced by an editorial team in conjunction with an international editorial advisory group drawn from the feminist scholarly community. Feminist Africa is a unique forum for progressive, cutting-edge feminist intellectual dialogue and gender research on the African continent.
It offers a space for theoretical and strategic debates that challenge the prevailing technocratic approaches to global development, and the reductionism of economic and policy approaches that neglect the lived realities, ingenuity and cultural production of Africa's diverse and dynamic peoples. Feminist Africa challenges the shared continental history of exploitation and marginalisation by attending to the complex cultures of resistance and local strategy that characterise the postcolonial era, while at the same time remaining attentive to the shifting global geopolitical configurations of power.
In this fascinating collection, full of different textures, narratives and nuances, sixteen authors have begun to tackle the task of writing South Africa's history from an overtly feminist perspective, giving readers an opportunity to understand and reflect on debates about real women's power in completely new and fresh ways.

Far from being the terrain where sections of the populace might be able to find economic liberation, the informal sector is, in fact characterised by serious internal differentiation, very low incomes, and an over-saturation that results in the inability of the women survey to do anything other than struggle at the margins for basic survival. Published by: Globalink Communications Ottawa, Canada, On Friday 13 February, at the instigation of a Catholic priest of Mburahati parish in Dar es Salaam, the Tanzania government ordered its para-military police force to open fire on unarmed Muslims at Mwembechai area, killing at least four of them.
It was soon discovered that the seditious claims made by the Catholic priest and repeatedly broadcast on a Catholic radio that Muslims were ridiculing Jesus were a sheer fabrication. Muslims' demands for an independent probe team to investigate the killings were immediately rejected by the Minister for Home Affairs. The government also banned a meeting organised by Muslim women to speak out about the sexual humiliations and indignities they suffered at the hands of male police officers while in remand prison.
In this book Dr. Njozi looks at the Mwembechai killings as a manifestation of a simmering political crisis in Tanzania. The book provides unsettling details about religious discrimination in a country which is thought by many as setting a shining example to rest of the world. Tha author's analysis of the looming political tragedy in Tanzania is both illuminating and sympathetic. Northeast African Studies Volume 6, Number , Michigan State University Press.

XXXIX, n. Akina Mama wa Afrika, This publication breaks the silence regarding women's sexuality. Governments, women's rights activists and other social movements, often fail to understand the connection between sex work, forced early marriage, land rights, poverty, education, property and inheritance rights.
We need to understand the politics behind sexuality, sexual rights and sex work because the liberation of all women, the equitable distribution of power and resources, and the ability to control our own bodies are indeed critical to our feminist agenda. It allows sex workers to speak for themselves; claim their spaces and share their stories.

Pan African Visions Pan African Visions is a forum for genuine analyses, frank and focused debates, constructive criticisms and concrete ideas to showcase the genius that lies within the African mindset as the continent and its people strive to move out of the ghetto that it has been wrongly labeled with, and relegated to, in the global village that the world has become. It is born out of the desire to come out with a publication that accompanies the continent as it makes positive strides in meeting up with the challenges of the 21st century.
As a website it will compliment existing publications with the difference that it will focus more attention on that which is positive about Africa, the progress that it is making, and the capabilities and potentials it has to brace multi-faceted challenges. With the increasing emergence of democratic governments, a more ambitious African Union, increasing efforts on the part of a growing new generation of leaders to get Africa more actively involved in the quest for solutions to its problems, the formulation of credit worthy blue prints like the New Partnership For African Development , the African Peer Review Mechanism, a more vibrant civil society,the frontline role its women are taking et al, African Visions will compliment similar ventures in marketing the success stories from Africa.

In Africa, however, access to information is limited, and especially so for rural women. The new information and communication technologies ICTs , centred mostly on the Internet, provide potential to redress this imbalance. The essays in this book examine the current and potential impact of the ICT explosion in Africa. They focus specifically on gender issues and analyze the extent to which women's needs and preferences are being served. The authors underscore the need for information to be made directly relevant to the needs of rural women, whether in the areas of agriculture, health, microenterprise, or education.
They argue that it is not enough for women simply to be passive participants in the development of ICTs in Africa.
