The New Partnership for Africa's Development plans to develop equitable and sustainable growth in Africa by increasing its integration with the world economy. But NEPAD has come under criticism from major social movements, trade unions and intellectuals for its reliance on corporate-driven globalisation, and its apparent existence as an extension of neo-colonial globalisation.
Patrick Bond: There are three areas of extreme danger that we would expect the G20 to address, if they are indeed claiming to be the world’s elite managers of human welfare: geopolitics, economics and environment. And with that in mind, recall what Frantz Fanon himself complained about in his book Toward the African Revolution: For my part the deeper I enter into the cultures and the political circles, the surer I am that the great danger that threatens Africa is the absence of ideology.

Patrick Writes A Book is an episode of The Silly Adventures of Patrick Star. SpongeBob: Hallo, Patrick! Patrick: Hallo, SpongeBob! I'm bored out of my mind. Do you know what I should do to make myself unbored? SpongeBob: Why don't you write a book? Patrick: That's a great idea! And I already know what it's going to be about, too. (Patrick takes out a pen, takes out a paper, and begins his work.
Allegedly voicing the popular will, NEPADs authors present NEPAD as Africa's "partnership" with world leaders. The partners that they would woo are the same leaders who preach to Africa about the virtues of free trade while preserving the enormous protections they give to their industrial and agricultural corporations, in open contempt of the WTO, which is supposed to regulate and enforce fair play. Skepticism about corporate-driven globalization is a thread running through the first round of civil society critiques of NEPAD. This book reproduces commentary from major social movements, trade unions, progressive intellectuals and other community leaders. It also includes the original NEPAD and a paragraph-by-paragraph annotated critique.
Does NEPAD simply represent an extension of neo-colonial globalization? Is it a mask for the partnership Frantz Fanon warned against forty years ago? In his book, The Wretched of the Earth, Fanon drew attention to a relationship forged by an African leadership which identifies "with the decadence of the bourgeoisie of the West. We need not think that it is jumping ahead; it is in fact beginning at the end. It is already senile before it has come to know the petulance, the fearlessness, or the will to succeed of youth."
