THIRD SECTOR AND LOCAL CITIZENSHIP: THE WAYS TO STOP THE GENERATING STRUCTURE OF UNDERDEVELOPMENT IN CAPE VERDE

Nardi Sousa

Abstract


This article analyses on the role of Third Sector/Social Economy in Cape Verde, as an attempt to construct a citizenship of Peace (and municipal community welfare), which would combat/neutralize the generating structure of underdevelopment. It also seeks to understand what happened in the post-independence period, the political strategies that have been developed to achieve this goal, and new forms of partnership between the state (becoming weak), the market (not so expressive) and the third sector (emergent), and analyze the costs of transitions of a political-economic system carried out in the absence of regulatory policies, as well as the importance of promoting dialogue and partnership between the social, political and economic actors, and the strengthening of tripartite institutions. It tries also to understand the dilemma of the Africans intellectuals in present days, as Amílcar Cabral (1978) pointed out. The dilemma between betraying Africa‘s interests and revolutionary mentality or becoming a liberal ‗petty bourgeois‘ that follow Washington (and ex-colonizers) Consensus.
