Enlarge image Quo Vadis Africa? Speakers Dinner (© RCMI) With its fast growing population of over 1.1 billion, and as the immediate neighbor of Europe and the West, Africa’s geographical proximity alone means that whatever happens on the continent will impact us all in one way or another. Although on the one hand there are huge opportunities for cooperation and business, on the other there are undeniably major challenges in some parts of the continent.
Any approach to Africa which does not consider its immense diversity is bound to fail. Traditional strategies centered on development aid have basically failed over the last six decades. However, there are also success stories on the continent which point the way to the future. From his personal experience and perspective in Ethiopia and Rwanda, two parts of the African continent that are rich in examples of both successes and failures, Peter Fahrenholtz will provide a fascinating commentary on some of those stories.
