Abstract

A 'democratic recession' is to be observed, which is not restricted to Sub-Sahara Africa. It went along with the rise of populist new nationalism and lack of regard of the concerned for the need to defend democracy actively. On the other hand, recent examples of African social movements that successfully campaigned for a democratic renaissance in Africa and elsewhere are promising indicators of progressive social forces that counteract global trends of the resurgence of right-wing nationalism and autocratic rule.
