Africa at a Fork in the Road: Taking Off or Disappointment Once Again?

Edited by Ernesto Zedillo, the Frederick Iseman ’74 Director of the Yale Center for the Study of Globalization; Olivier Cattaneo, Yale World Fellow; and Haynie Wheeler, associate director of the Yale Center for the Study of Globalization

(Yale Center for the Study of Globalization)

The papers contained in this e-book are based on presentations from the conference “Africa at a Fork in the Road: Taking Off or Disappointment Once Again?,” organized by the Yale Center for the Study of Globalization on April 14 and 15, 2014.

The conference brought together a group of academics, practitioners, and policymakers from Africa, the United States, and Europe, with the objective of analyzing the sustainability of Africa’s current trajectory, exploring which policies and practices have proven most effective throughout the region, and discussing what needs to be done to keep Africa growing and address more effectively the acute poverty and human development problems that persist in some countries on that continent.

A PDF of this e-book may be read on the Yale Center for the Study of Globalization website.
