THE END OF ‘WESTERN DEMOCRACY’ AS WE KNOW IT?
AN OPPORTUNITY FOR AFRICA TO SHOW A NEW PATH.
In light of Brexit and the impact of the US election reverberating across the globe, coupled with a surge in populism and crude nationalism in Europe and Eurasia – how can Africa steer a new, equitable and vibrant democratic course for the future of the continent?
