A Changing Tide in Africa: Conflict, Corruption and Economic Opportunity

A new story is emerging in Africa and it is being told by those most crucial in determining Africa’s future – its citizens. Their concerns are shifting away from tribal clashes and state-driven violence toward a new set of issues. Africa’s citizens are disappointed by the performance of their governments, concerned about pervasive corruption, and face a dire lack of economic opportunities. Join us for a live webinar discussion with leading Africa experts to learn about the findings from a new Centre for International Governance Innovation-GlobeScan poll on conflict and change in Africa.
