Coperación Política. II. Coperación Económica.III. Coperación Social.


Se acordó que una nueva reunión ministerial sobre este tema se celebrará en Nueva York el próximo septiembre en el marco de la Asamblea General de la ONU y en coincidencia con la declaración de ese organismo del 2011 como año de solidaridad con los pueblos afrodescendientes.


La Cumbre sobre la diáspora africana, convocada por la Unión Africana, está prevista para desarrollarse en Sudáfrica en 2011, donde gobiernos y sociedad civil de los países con importante presencia de afrodescendientes decidirán el curso de acción en este nuevo entorno creado para el tratamiento participativo de la diáspora africana en los países donde residen y el vínculo de estos con África.


 

RESEÑA HISTÓRICA DIÁSPORA AFRICANA. (En Inglés) About the African Diaspora: Historical Process

The history of the dialogue process between Africa and its Diaspora is an enduring one. In part it has been begetted by the inhumane and cruel transatlantic slavery that interrupted both African civilisation and her development. The second trend and process of African Diaspora formation has been a one of migration occasioned by a skewed and geo-global development that evidenced the concentration of resources and productive forces, which process spewed modern civilisation, much to the chagrin of Africa whilst bestowing favour and privilege to so-called developed countries.

 

The turn of the 19th century saw the burgeoning of Pan African discourse as a unity imperative to fight the scourge of colonial occupation and racism. Erudite African intellectuals and leaders such as Henry Sylvester Williams, WEB du Bois, George Padmore, CLR James and others, convened conferences and wrote seminally on this African Diaspora dialogue.

 

The clarion call for Africa’s unity was not only sounded by and in the Caribbean base, but reverberated throughout a liberating Africa. Leaders such as Kwame Nkrumah, Julius Nyerere, Leopold Senghor, and Sekou Toure tied the umbilical cord of unity, enjoining political clarity of thought with peers, comrades, intellectuals and thinkers such as Franz Fanon, Walter Rodney and activists such as Marcus Garvey, Tappa Zukie and Peter Tosh amongst others.

 

The 21st century has experienced no differently in its quest for African Unity. The existential condition of Africa, i.e. the perennial peripheral outcast to the margins of global configuration of power has strengthened the need for realignment and fostered renewed energy for Africa. The African Diaspora dialogue is at the epicentre in dealing decisively and effectively with underdevelopment, poverty and marginalisation. The overriding developmental agenda continued to define the imperative for a meaningful connection between Africa and its Diaspora.
