This book is about the democratisation of labour relations in Africa. It was recalled in the first two chapters how Africa moved from dogmatic party or military controlled labour relations and trade unionism, to a context of a multi-party liberal market economy in which the labour relations actors had to redefine their positions and policies. This process may best be captured under the notion of ‘democratisation of labour relations’, a process that has only begun and that presents formidable challenges, in particular to the trade union movement and to the workers in general.
