The same collection includes a chapter by John F. La France et l'Afrique en perspective" Paris: Flammarion, Answer to this question is sought through analysis of systematic data on 99 national legislative elections held under 55 electoral systems in 37 countries.

Regression analysis shows that electoral institutions have negligible independent effects, while contextual variables independently and interactively with each other and with electoral institutions account for the largest amount of variance on the degree of fragmentation or concentration of party systems.
The conclusion discusses the implications of the results for the consolidation of Africa's emerging democracies in the context of ethnopolitical diversity.

The shaping force of Empire on nineteenth-century British and colonial cultures, as well as on the developing cultures of post-colonial states, has been the subject of much of the most exciting recent work in both Victorian and Postcolonial studies.
The heavy traffic in themes and motifs, and in genres, narratives and plots between the metropolis and the colonies that is evident across the nineteenth century, and which persists in residual and reactive ways in post-colonial cultures suggests that there are multiple points of overlap and interaction, of historical continuity and contrast. Despite much shared ground, however, the current constitution of the academic fields of the historicist and British-focused Victorian studies and the more theoretically self-conscious and globally oriented Postcolonial studies has meant that conversations between the two areas have sometimes been difficult or disrupted.
In this one-day symposium on metropolitan, colonial and post-colonial cultures, we wish to stage a conversation between Victorian and Postcolonial studies at the present time, to consider areas of overlap and indebtedness, as well as points of contest and disavowal. What are the points of recognition and misrecognition? At its most obvious level then, we want to address the question, how does Victorian culture look under the lens of Postcolonial theory? In what ways do critical concepts regarding, for instance, race, hybridity, marginality, cosmopolitanism, etc. But we also want to reverse the question and interrogate the Victorian colonial legacy in Postcolonial studies: for instance, to what extent do the critical vocabulary and the political strategies of Postcolonial studies draw on concepts which originate in a nineteenth-century colonial context?
How far is the analytical work of Postcolonial studies framed by nineteenth-century literary and scientific discourses?

The Cultural Politics of the African Renaissance 2. It is a frequently observed fact that contemporary Africa is and has been for some time past demographically characterised above all else by its youthfulness. In Eastern Africa the median age of the population is now Despite their numerical predominance, however, youth in Eastern Africa are poorly represented in regional political and economic structures. At the same time, academic knowledge of this group is relatively undeveloped.
This conference seeks to address lacunae in the existing scholarship, and to bring together the growing number of researchers from diverse disciplines with an interest in the study of youth from contemporary and historical perspectives. A number of themes have been highlighted although these are by no means exclusive and suggestions for panels on alternative themes are encouraged. These include:.
