Den botswanska kvinnans dilemma - självständig och samtidigt beroende. Trots att det mesta av det vanliga jordbruksarbetet utförs av kvinnor och trots att en fjärdedel av hushållen på landsbygden har en kvinna som överhuvud, står enligt traditionell rätt alltid en kvinna under en mans förmyndarskap - hon betraktas som ett barn.

Africa has more refugees than any other continent. Some have fled from war, some from natural disasters, and many from both.This study is based partly on a field study to Botswana, encompassing interviews with different institutions and persons involved in refugee work, and archive work in that country. It is an unusually detailed and painstaking effort to examine the legal framwork, and the legal problems invovled in the refugee movements.Some of the problems discussed are the relationship between national law and international conventions concerning refugees, the determination of refugee status, the freedom of movement of the refugees, their right to work, and the question of refugees' right to acquire citizenship.

The Discussion Paper provides insightful explanations for Botswana’s emergence as one of Africa’s developmental success stories. It underscores the role of the ruling elite coalition in shaping the particular kind of politics, inclusive policies, consensus, partnerships and vision that have contributed to the emergence of Botswana as a democratic developmental state. This is an important paper that should be read by all those keen to understand how Botswana has managed to avoid the ‘natural resource curse’ and stand out as a model of democratic stability and sustained economic growth in Africa.
