The economic, social and political governance challenges for sub-Saharan Africa remain immense. Despite progress in some health and education indicators, Africa needs more inclusive growth, jobs for its fast-growing population, and better social services and infrastructure.

In this series of talks and panel discussions we will be looking at corruption, development, capital flight, regulation and more.

This series is in conjunction with the Oxford Martin Programme on African Governance
