PostColonial Imitation, And Then What ?

It is undeniable that the juridical and institutional framework adopted
by African democracies is characterized by many resemblances and similarities
with regimes elaborated outside of the continent. In this age of
globalization, far from being an African specificity imitation, or what
is called imitation, is or has become one aspect of a broader and more
complex phenomenon, i.e. political and institutional standardization,
with which it has been confused. At a time when the problem is not so
much to define what form of democracy would suit Africa but rather
to know how the democratic process chosen by African states can be
strengthened, the priority should be to take into account the various
strategies of invention of democracy and to identify, on a case to case
basis, the forms and conditions of the development of democracy in the
various contexts and environments in which it is expected to develop.
