Constraints on the Success of Structural Adjustment Programmes in Africa

  • Charles Harvey

About this book

Introduction

This book reports why orthodox structural adjustment measures do not have the expected results in Africa. Orthodox measures may be necessary but are frequently not sufficient because of structural factors, some peculiar to individual countries, some found more widely. Six chapters report on extensive fieldwork in Kenya, Tanzania, Zambia and Zimbabwe; three chapters compare countries in Africa (recovery from disaster, labour markets, new financial markets) and one makes comparisons with Asia and Latin America of employment policies.
