Chapter Summary

The bibliography section presents the list of reference articles and chapters for this book Movers and Shakers: social movements in Africa. The book explains a wide range of social movements in Africa. South Africa is assuming a significant role by offering funds and moral leadership to the rest of the continent, sometimes providing an entry point to Africa for international networks or organizations seeking to expand their activities. The international human-rights discourse has provided inspiration and moral legitimation for a range of causes, including the campaign against slavery in Mauritania and that against blood diamonds in Sierra Leone. Furthermore, social movements in Africa frequently have a pan-African dimension.

Keywords: Africa; international human-rights; Mauritania; slavery; social movements
