Sample text

Passive revolution takes the form of either Caesarism or trasformismo. The former describes a balance of social forces maintained by the sheer personal power of the ruler. Trasformismo relates to domestication or co-option of potentially radical ideas and subaltern groups or leaders (Cox 1981; Morton 2007). Passive revolution merely affirms the intransigence of the existing configuration of social forces in a given state. The first two sections of this article introduce the content of NEPAD and the political reaction it engendered in Africa.

Adedeji argued that with the introduction of ‘partnership’, the liberal international principle of interdependence is no longer in the service of Africa. It would, therefore, be naive to expect the partnership advocated by NEPAD to signify anything other than submission of Africa to a neoliberal discipline. It has to be noted, however, that recent initiatives such as the Paris Declaration on Aid Effectiveness3 have introduced new principles governing aid relationships, such as alignment, harmonisation, mutual accountability, etc.

NEPAD served as the coordinating site for the emerging ICT entrepreneurs who were set to introduce the Open Access Model. Before the recent introduction of fibre-optic technology in Africa, Internet users in most parts of the continent had depended on leased satellite links to connect to exchange points in the US. However, satellite connectivity was more expensive than fibre-optic technology for high-volume traffic. Furthermore, the charging arrangements for the exchange of traffic between local ISPs and global backbone providers stipulated that the former must pay for both outgoing and incoming traffic.
