Undoing Coups: The African Union and Post-coup Intervention in Madagascar (Hardback)

£65.00
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

Since the beginnings of independence, a number of African nations have been plagued by repeated coup d'etats. Within the African Union (AU), there has been a concerted effort to break this cycle through the official adoption of 'anti-coup norms', by which the AU is mandated to suspend a member state and restore constitutional order following a coup. Supporters of this stance see it as strengthening democracy in Africa, while critics argue that it has served to prop up existing regimes. But there has been little analysis of what the AU's attempts to 'restore constitutional order' have meant for individual African states.







In this book, Antonia Witt looks at the legacy of the AU's intervention in Madagascar following the 2009 'Malagasy crisis', one of the few instances of non-Western intervention in Africa. The book looks at the ways in which international intervention reconfigured the political order in Madagascar, and unwittingly facilitated the power struggle within the Madagascan elite. It also considers what the example set by the Madagascan intervention means for 'anti-coup' efforts and the wider international order in Africa.

Antonia Witt is a Post-doctoral Researcher at the Peace Research Institute Frankfurt (PRIF), Germany and Associated Post-doctoral Researcher at the Chair of Professor Nicole Deitelhoff at the Cluster of Excellence 'Normative Orders' at Goethe University Frankfurt, Germany. Antonia Witt has a background in International Relations, African Studies, and Peace and Conflict Research Her main research interests are: international and (African) regional organizations, authority and legitimacy in the international realm, interventions, and democratization and political crises in Africa.
