The Problem of State Building and National Integration in Africa: The Identity Crisis

إشكالية بناء الدولة وتحقيق الاندماج الوطني في إفريقيا: أزمة الهوية

The colonial phenomenon left an actual problem in the continent of Africa, represented in the incompleteness of the state building. It also clearly contributed to the establishment of a crisis of identity and national integration by drawing geographical lines that do not take into account the peculiarities of society at its different levels and ramifications (ethnic, racial, and even religious and cultural…); The colonial dimension had a great impact on the state’s inability to adapt to the changes and transformations taking place at the internal and external levels, which led to it remaining hostage to previous backgrounds and references in its institutional structure.

This has made many African countries, since their independence, face many challenges and stakes at the level of state-building in its institutional, social and even cultural aspect, due to the inability of the majority of these countries to get rid of the colonial legacy with all its political, economic and social remnants…, which constituted an obstacle, a real move towards building a new state in Africa completely independent of the colonizer and its various sediments.

Keywords: Colonial Phenomenon; State Building; Institutional Building; Obstacles to Building a State.
