Africa’s (con)tested relations with international community

Category: Uncategorized<ADMINNICENAME> @ 8:10 PM

The eminent scholar of African affairs, Stephen Ellis, writes to me about how the ICC’s action last week against Kenya’s political elite represents a new test for the international community’s relations with sub-Saharan Africa:

“There are quite a few prominent scholars (notably Alex de Waal) who, from a liberal perspective, have been quite critical of international justice in similar situations.  As you say, Kenya is far from being an impotent or failed state, which makes some of the implications of international justice different than in a case like Liberia or Congo.”

“Kenya is just one test of the changing relationship between African countries and the international community at present, with Ivory Coast being another.”
