In the 1990s, after years of collapsing economies, structural adjustment, and the tightening of political space, civil society in Africa made a dramatic comeback. Battles for democracy, human rights and press freedom took place all over the continent. Hopes on the Horizon recounts six of these battles, battles that would lead to profound change in the countries in which they took place. The book captures the voices of ordinary Africans in Benin, Nigeria, Rwanda, Morocco, Mozambique and South Africa as they bring about extraordinary change in their countries. It uniquely documents social justice activists as witnesses to an epoch of important historic transformation and provides critical lessons and inspiration for other social justice activists all over the continent about to embark on their own struggles for change.
