The New Africa: Challenges and Hope  

In our fourth and final session of the Camden Conference New Africa Discussion Series, we shall reflect upon the challenges that confront Sub-Sahara Africa in joining the global community on its own terms.  And we shall examine a set of African-generated initiatives that inspire hope of such inclusion in the near future.   Toward those ends, we will look at evidence suggesting that Sub-Sahara Africa is emerging as a potential economic power and ponder whether pervasive and
long-standing cultural, ethnic, economic, political, leadership, and environmental challenges can be overcome. Finally, we will assess whether in-country and regional initiatives currently underway provide beacons of hope for Sub-Sahara Africa’s emergence. Join us for an evening of unraveling the challenges and the hopes that together are Sub-Sahara Africa.
