Registered author(s):

    En este artículo se estudian las oportunidades de reducción de la pobreza en África subsahariana surgidas a raíz de la reciente propuesta de condonación de deuda del G-7, del Banco Mundial y del Fondo Monetario Internacional, la llamada Iniciativa PPAE. En primer lugar se realiza un repaso histórico al proceso de endeudamiento africano a partir de las independencias en los años 60, señalando sus causas y analizando la estructura de la deuda. En segundo lugar, se analizan los términos de la Iniciativa, estudiando su planteamiento, implementación y estado de aplicación a fecha de junio de 2001. Finalmente se aportan elementos de crítica a la Iniciativa desde un enfoque de desarrollo humano, apuntando las limitaciones de ésta de cara a la reducción de la pobreza en África subsahariana.
