In recent years civil wars and conflicts across Africa have continued, and the number of conflicts over states and nationhood that we have witnessed since the holding of the conference serves to underline the topicality and importance of this issue. What these conflicts demonstrate is the complexity of nation and state building processes. The book explores many of these intricacies and provides analysis of the causes and consequences of the ongoing struggle for identities.
