Trade unions and workplace democracy in Africa

December 7, 2009

From the Publisher:

Can democracy only survive if it is participatory? Is participatory democracy a prerequisite for sustainable development? Are trade unions the most appropriate body through which such aims can be implemented?

These critical questions are tackled in Gérard Kester’s book, Trade Unions and Workplace Democracy in Africa, which applies an unparalleled depth of research to these issues as they impact African nations, including: Cape Verde, Burkina Faso, Mali, Guinea, Ghana, South Africa, Zambia, Tanzania and Zimbabwe.

Rigorously structured, it sets the background of the research and the underlying theory, before presenting the learning experiences within different countries and the the broad implications of the research findings for policy making on democratic participation.

Trade unions and workplace democracy in Africa / Gerard Kester ; with one chapter by Akua O. Britwum. Aldershot, Hampshire, England : Ashgate, 2007. xv, 329 p. : ill. ; 24 cm. ISBN 9780754649977
