Poverty, inequality, social exclusion - these are the most serious problems faced by developing countries. In the case of Brazil, a condition of socio-economic segregation has become pervasive, as pointed out by Cristovam Buarque in the first research article. Buarque has coined the word apartação in Portuguese, to denote this condition, and offers some insights on what can be done to redress this anomaly. In the second article, Timothy Othieno focuses on the Cuban presence in Angola during the civil war and points to some conflicts between ideology and pragmatism in carrying out Cuban foreign policy in Africa.
