Reconfiguring the System

(p.186) Epilogue
Working the System

Jon Schubert

Cornell University Press

The epilogue updates the book with the most recent political developments in Angola (2012-2016), focusing on the growing repression of dissidence since the 2012. It appears that the cultivation of consent is reaching its limits, and that the regime is increasingly relying on the armor of coercion to ensure its survival. This chapter then offers a further perspective on the ways the system is being remade and reproduced in a moment of crisis, and sketch out the possibility of change, through the system, from an Angolan perspective.
