All the lectures published in this book were given between 21 and 29 June 1996 on the occasion of the Sura za Afrika-Festival. They were part of four workshops held in the cities of Linz, Graz, Innsbruck and Vienna. These lectures are, on the one hand, the documentation of a substantial intellectual discourse and, on the other, also an important contribution of a substantial intellectual discourse on a new positioning of the African continent in a globalising world. Sura za Afrika - Voices from Africa contains contributions from outstanding members of the international scientific community like the historian Joseph Ki-Zerbo, or the philosopher Kwasi Wiredu, from former and (1996) future ministers like Paulin Houtondji (former Minister for Education in Benin) or Apolo R. Nsimbambi (now Minister for Education and Sports in Uganda), beside committed interventions from members of African NGOs like Alice Abok from YWCA Kenya, Ledea Ouedraogo or Opa Kapijimpanga from AFRODAD/Harare or trade-unionists like Essayas Bernhanu. It was this exchange of opinions and points of view beyond academic circles that made the workshops that exciting.
