The Political Economy of Senegal under Structural Adjustment

Synopsis

Senegal, one of Africa's few civilian-ruled countries, offers insight into the process of national development. Sixteen essays address the interplay between economic and political forces shaping the destiny of this major African nation. This interdisciplinary approach to development is built around two main themes. One, external economic events influence Senegal's domestic economic options which in turn affect and are being affected by its political structures. Two, the world facing Senegal is particularly harsh for nurturing both national unity and the development of stable political and economic institutions.
