Bond, Patrick (2002) Thabo Mbeki's New Partnership for Africa's Development Breaking or Shining the Chains of Global Apartheid?. Centre for Civil Society : 1-24.

Bond's essay considers Thabo Mbeki's analysis of globalisation, his strategy
and demands for global-scale and continental socio-economic progress, and
his preferred alliances. These topics arise because of his stated intention, in
the October 2001 New Partnership for Africa's Development (Nepad), to establish a`new framework of interaction with the rest of the world, including the industrialised countries and multilateral organisations'--one that is sufficiently `radical' to lift African GDP growth to 7% per annum. That new framework has been emerging since mid-2000, when Mbeki began high-profile international discussions with G-8 leaders about African political economics. Nepad will be highlighted and endorsed at the G-8 meeting in Alberta, Canada in June 2002, at the July launch of the African Union in Pretoria, and at the Johannesburg World Summit on Sustainable Development--with a proposed global `New Deal' modeled on Nepad--in late August. At such events, protesters who support the cause of global environmental, social and economic justice will be told, in effect, `Don't worry, you can go home, because Thabo Mbeki is taking care of globalisation's shortcomings.'
