The future of Africa at the Oxford Literary Festival 2015

Mar 2015

Three authors with recent books on Africa discuss the future of the continent and answer questions from the audience under the watchful eye of the director of the Oxford Martin School, Professor Ian Goldin.  

Martin Meredith, Jonny Steinberg and Tom Burgis will discuss what the future holds for African states. How can the continent deal with failing government and corruption and with war and a constant flow of refugees? How far is Africa a victim of its past, and is there a new financial colonialism holding it back? What can the rest of the world do to help Africa to grow and prosper in peace?
