Description

This work examines the role and function of 20 or so elections that have taken place in the African continent in the first half of the 1990s. It looks at how they have affected the functioning of democratisation and conflict management, and also offers useful lessons from these observations for other regions. The books shows how elections can either help reduce tensions by reconstituting legitimate government or how they can exacerbate tensions by further polarizing highly conflictual societies.
