Cosmopolitanism and African Politics
Cosmopolitanism is a normative theory that is antinomic to communitarianism, and it has a definite relevance both to the political history of Africa and to its condition in the current context of neoliberal globalization.
This relevance is perceived, in fact, by the triple vocation of anti-imperialist, alter-globalist and post-nationalist cosmopolitanism of the International Relations vision.
