TECHNOLOGY and PEACE in AFRICA A Paradox of Progress

‘Peace’ in Africa goes beyond the absence of wars and conflicts as would be the case in the other parts of the world. In the African context, peace should entail the eradication of poverty, the accomplishment of the fight against corruption and the unhygienic politics in African governments. It also means the absence of social injustice towards women and children, the improvement of healthcare for all, the provision of high-quality education for children and many other issues, which affect different countries of the continent. There cannot be peace when these factors are active at extremely high levels, as is the situation in some African countries. Peace in Africa is holistic. As a huge and diversified continent with many cultures, languages, and ways of life, the absence of a lot of concerns should be considered peace.
