Abstract

The aim of this chapter is to unpack the concept of “Building a Human Community with a Shared Future” and explore its potential to realize to the right to development (rd) in Africa. In doing so, the chapter assesses the concept of Human Community with a Shared Future which is a call for a world without discrimination, without domination of some by others, or a world characterized by equality sustained by win-win cooperation between states. The chapter also examines the notion through the lens of the African philosophy of “Ubuntu” as well as in the rd context as provided for by the African Charter on Human and Peoples’ Rights. It argues that building a Human Community with a Shared Future resonates well in Africa because the African communitarian way of life secured in its philosophy known as Ubuntu highlights the need to consider everyone’s humanity and sees humankind as of paramount value. It also shows that building a Human Community with a Shared Future is essential for the realization of the rd because historically, Africa has been subjugated through slavery, colonialism or imperialism and through global trade and financial inequities in post-colonial time. It was found that building a Human Community with a Shared Future will enhance the likelihood of the realization of the rd in Africa.

This comparative book debates migration and regional integration in the two regional economic blocs, namely the Southern African Development Community (SADC) and the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS). The book takes a historical and nuanced citizenship approach to integration by analysing regional integration from the perspective of non-state actors and how they negotiate various structures and institutions in their pursuit for life and livelihood in a contemporary context marked by mobility and economic fragmentation.
