Issues in the Economy and Politics of Swaziland since 1968
The first chapter in this publication covers the social welfare provision in Swaziland. Chapter Two titled Economic and social aspects of Farm Squatters in Swaziland since 1982 examines some broad issues which the Droxford incidence highlighted about labour, production and political relations in agriculture in Swaziland. A second intention of this paper is to discuss the nature of Swaziland's colonial inheritance on land and examine the approaches which the government implemented after Swaziland attained independence in September 1968. In the chapter on youth participation in the development of Swaziland an attempt is made to analyse the difficulties which hinder effective youth participation in the creation of national and social prosperity. The geographical focus of chapter 4 is on women's migration as a factor of post-colonial development in Swaziland. The discussion in chapter 5 concentrates on environmental issues which have determined economic development. Chapter 6 addresses the language rights of people in Swaziland and how that has influenced the development of the economy and continues in Chapter 7 where the development of a language policy is discussed. Chapter 8 and 9 examines religion and especially Christianity as a developmental issue. Chapter ten describes the evolvement of democracy in Africa and in Zambia and Swaziland in particular. The last chapter in this publication examines the need for regional cooperation in the SADC region.
