About this product
- DescriptionThis book was inspired by a simple truth: person should face death to cast a vote r for the choice made. The ability of a country to successfully conduct n-violent elections is a crucial indicator of the consolidation of its democracy and a necessary condition for free and fair citizen participation. Unfortunately, democratization is rarely a smooth path. The competition and contestation characteristic of the entire electoral process can, in the extreme, result in the electoral violence that we have seen rage in starkly different countries around the world. In Africa, with its high degrees of societal and cultural diversity, and relatively weaker mediating institutions, electoral violence remains a crucial challenge that requires deeper investigation and collective action to address. With 30 African countries holding elections in 2011, and ather 20 scheduled for 2012 elections, this book is especially timely for policy-makers, scholars, civic leaders and activists interested in ending deadly violence and advancing democracy. --from the Introduction
