Essay from the year 2002 in the subject Politics - International Politics - Region: Africa, grade: 8, 0 von max 10, University of Amsterdam (FMG), 4 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: As a participant of the course ‘Abandoning Development: Africa and the
Contemporary Economic International Political-Economic System I am asked to write
a final paper about an issue that was dealt with in the course and which is also based

community will have to deal with. But rather than developing these scenarios, this
paper deals with the issue, whether recent policies and tools to ameliorate the
economic situation of many African countries are suitable and eventually led to
improvement in economic and social terms. Since the early eighties neoliberal
