Abstract

Traditionally and historically, Africans has a respected value that account for their existence. But the advent of globalization as a process of englobing the world and the reduction of the whole universe into a global village has some negative effects on Africans and their values. This is obvious in the negative aspect of political, cultural, and economic globalization. Through the method of analysis, this work examines the globalization process and some effects it has on Africa. It also examines the relationship between positive aspect of globalization process and African values with a view of guaranteeing mutual respect and corporation among them. Therefore, the paper suggests mutual respect between positive aspect of globalization and African values. It further advocates for the reintegration of African value system in the society through African knowledge centre where Africans can preserve, expose and propagate their values, and practice universal communalism in the society.  This will guarantee and promote the effective democratic system and development in Africa.
