In the domestic realm, some of the major issues that are examined in this book include the expansive role of non-governmental organizations amid some African states' abdication of their responsibility to provide "public goods" for their citizens (E.g. health care, education), the growing role and influence of charismatic Pentecostal churches against the backdrop of the poor state of human development, ethnic conflicts in East Africa, the failure of the African Union's peacemaking and peacekeeping efforts in Sudan's Darfur region, and the broader travails of resolving Africa's civil conflicts. In the international sphere, this book discusses Africa's growing relations with the European Union, as evidenced by the extension of their relationship to the security domain."@en ;
