Africa: How Social Conservatives in Africa Use Anti-Globalization Struggle

Categories: Sub-Saharan Africa, Ghana, Arts & Culture, Politics

Graham shows how social conservatives in Africa use the anti-globalization struggle [1]: “They use the same arguments and language as the radicals, but they are not revolutionaries. Their language of liberation, of African independence and opposition to aid, seeks not to liberate but to constrain. They seek to ossify culture and to maintain the status quo. They are social conservatives.”
