This paper examines the impact of Western foreign policy on African states in the post-containment era. Section I provides a general overview of Western foreign policy in Africa towards the end of the Cold War. Section II explores the political and economic consequences of perestroika on African states. Section III discusses the political, military and economic implications of the demise of communism in Eastern Europe on both national and regional politics in the subcontinent. Section IV argues that the consolidation of power by the industrialized countries of the North, and the deepening economic crises in Africa has marginalized African states in the new world order. With specific emphasis on Africa, the final section critically examines the structural framework and philosophical basis of this new order.
