Africa has turned several corners economically and politically, but there are still serious problems to face in order to conquer poverty and achieve the kinds of individual and national breakthroughs that Asia and Latin America has experienced. Robert Rotberg, Fulbright Research Chair in Political Development at the Balsillie School of International Affairs and Visiting Fulbright Scholar at CIGI, will discuss the nature of these problems and what is needed going forward in terms of leadership and governance. 

An op-ed by Robert Rotberg on this topic entitled "Good leadership is Africa’s missing ingredient" was published in the Globe and Mail on March 4, 2013. Read the article here.
