GLOBAL PARTNERS FOR LOCAL INITIATIVES: NEPAD IN THE ERA OF GLOBALISATION

Cornel Du Toit

Abstract


The “New partnership for Africa’s development” (NEPAD) document is one of the
most tangible outcomes of the African renaissance idea. It is a timely document that
responds, among others, to the threat of economic globalisation. This essay relates
to the NEPAD initiative to economic globalisation in the context of a post-welfare
state era. NEPAD is akin to the new new-regionalism model which proposes to
obviate the negative effects of economic globalisation. Examples are given from the
NEPAD document. Some challenges facing NEPAD are discussed. The main points
of critique expressed against NEPAD – especially from the side of the South African
Council of Churches (SACC) – are dealt with.
