In the 1980s, South Africa's Apartheid policy resulted in violent uprisings and laws designed to stop them resulting in clashes between the black and white population. But outside of South Africa, the United Nations and other governments were trying to force South Africa to stop with this policy, and banning South Africa from sporting events was all part of the plan to help push along the reforms.

But Formula One continued to visit. In 1981 the FISA-FOCA war resulted in a non-race because of internal politics, but in 1985 three teams no-showed because of South Africa's national politics. So what caused it? Let's find out.

Along the muddy roads and forested rivers snaking through Central Africa, rebels and soldiers, traditional authorities and civil servants, erect roadblocks where they deploy the threat of violence to impose their will on passersby. There are, in fact, so many roadblocks in Central Africa that it is hard to find a road that does not have one.

Peer Schouten (Danish Institute of International Studies) has mapped over a thousand of them in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Central African Republic, and South Sudan. In his talk, Schouten will present the main findings of his book Roadblock Politics: the Origins of Violence in Central Africa (Cambridge University Press, 2022), which argues that roadblocks aren’t just a symptom of corruption or state failure but encapsulate a distinct and meaningful form of order-making. The failure to recognise the central role of roadblocks in this region is due to the stubborn myth that political actors, armed or not, behave like aspiring Westphalian states, trying to control as much territory and people as possible.

Zooming in on in the DRC, Schouten discusses how communities, rebels and state security forces forge resistance and power out of control over these narrow points of passage. Roadblock Politics reveals the connections between these roadblocks in Central Africa and global supply chains, tracking the flow of multinational corporations and UN agencies alike through them, to show how they encapsulate a form of power, which thrives under conditions of supply chain capitalism. The book also traces how crucial control over long-distance trade has been in the deep history of the region. In doing so, he develops a new lens through which to understand what drives state formation and conflict in the region, offering a radical alternative to explanations that foreground control over minerals, territory or population as key drivers of Central Africa's violent history.

With Kalundi Serumaga, Ayantu Tibeso & Romi Morrison
Moderation & curation: J. Khadijah Abdurahman

How do we situate digital technologies in the long duree of settler colonialism and enslavement both within the African continent and the United States or Turtle Island? What is a black sense of place and how does it interrupt normative understandings of race and technology? What sonic archives from the black diaspora can destabilize the way we think about computation? Former radio DJ, journalist and Ugandan scholar Kalundi Serumaga, Oromo archivist Ayantu Tibeso and interdisciplinary artist, researcher and educator Romi Morrison will discuss each of these questions drawing from black feminist theory and african indigenous practices. The event will be moderated by J. Khadijah Abdurahman, founder of We Be Imagining, a project at Columbia University applying the black radical tradition to developing public interest technology.

More information about the book is available here.

Speaker:

Peer Schouten (PhD) is a senior researcher at the Danish Institute for International Studies and associate researcher at the International Peace Information Service. His research focuses on the political economy of conflict in Africa, with a focus on how local forms of order-making entangle with global actors and dynamics. As such, he has published widely on the links between business and conflict, infrastructure and statebuilding, extractive industries, and on roadblocks—all grounded in an empirical commitment to Central Africa.

Chair:

Prof. Rita Abrahamsen, Director of CIPS and Professor at the Graduate School of Public and International Affairs, University of Ottawa

Two 1940s Crises and a Christian Response: The Christian Council of South Africa, the Second World War and the Coming of Apartheid

Abstract:

At two vital moments in the 1940s, the key decade of transition to apartheid, the Christian Council of South Africa (CCSA) held large, significant ecumenical conferences. The 1942 wartime one was appropriately entitled ‘Christian Reconstruction in South Africa’, while the gathering called in 1949, a year after the National Party’s victory under the slogan of apartheid, explored ‘The Christian Citizen in a Multi-Racial Society’. The CCSA itself explicitly linked the two conferences in 1949, comparing their timing and contextual challenges. Central to both conferences – though virtually unknown and largely unremembered today - was the British Methodist minister, Edward William Grant, assiduous secretary for the first conference, and chairman, then CCSA president, during the second. The paper weighs up this Eastern Cape ecumenical mission venture as compared with the significance of better-known radical anti-apartheid white Anglican clerics active in Johannesburg in the 1940s and 50s. It provides a way of gauging and evaluating church reaction to two over-riding crises of the 1940s facing South Africa. It also makes it possible to probe the degree to which such ecumenism mobilised African support and offered meaningful, confrontational political challenge from the churches to the status quo in that vital decade.



Biography

Deborah Gaitskell first studied history in Cape Town, where she grew up, then completed an MA in African Studies and later a PhD in history at SOAS. This focused on women missionaries and African women Christians in the Johannesburg area in the first half of the 20th century, and resulted in the publication of various journal articles and book chapters. She has since worked on black girls’ mission education; and Methodist prominence in the ecumenical movement. She has taught in secondary schools and adult education, as well as five colleges of London University, most notably the Institute of Education and SOAS. A former editor of the Journal of Southern African Studies, she ran a seminar series on Gender in Empire and Commonwealth for some years at the Institute of Commonwealth Studies and is now a co-convenor of the Christian Missions in Global History seminar at the Institute of Historical Research.

This major offers you the best of both domestic politics and international relations issues and affords you the necessary critical skills to understand and meet these challenges, all in an effort to improve the human condition.

Due to long tenures in office and dominance of ruling political parties, many opposition leaders in Africa rarely get elected into political offices.
Being an opposition figure in a continent like Africa, where abuse of power and human rights violations is the order of the day, is definitely a dangerous task.
In this video, we bring you 10 opposition leaders who have remained dogged and refused to bow to government pressure as they go after the actualization of their political calling.
