The New Africa Initiative

Working for Synergy

edited by Tegegne Teka

This publication comprises the proceedings of the 1997 and 1998 workshops held in Addis Ababa and Nairobi on the 'New Africa Initiative', which was initiated in July 1996 with the support of the Ford Foundation Governance and Civil Society Programme for Eastern Africa. The initiative set out to advance mutually beneficial interaction among key governmental, civil society and knowledge generating institutions and individuals. It was a project cooperatively led by organisations with a view to fostering a creative, tolerant and democratic culture in the younger sections of the population in East Africa, and to promote democratic constitutions and people-centred politics. This publication intends to communication and discuss in some detail the ideas, objectives and conclusions of the initiative. It includes contributions on museums, ethnicity and democracy; democracy and conflict preservation; development through media; and the contributions of the media to the initiative. The contributors include Jonathan Moyo and Tade Aina.
