9781447328537: Development in Africa: Refocusing the Lens after the Millennium Development Goals

Nonetheless, the continent still faces major development challenges. This book brings together a sterling roster of contributors to analyze present and future development in Africa, post-Millennium Development Goals. It presents twelve major public policy conversations that they deem essential to Africa’s future growth and success.

Review:

“In exploring the multiple dimensions of the post-2015 development agenda for Africa, this clear, well-structured, and compelling collection by leading African and international scholars offers promising but realistic policy choices for addressing the region’s challenges.” (Francis Owusu, Iowa State University)

“A valuable and wide-ranging discussion of the achievements and challenges of African development that demonstrates the importance of a ‘developmental state’ in enabling Africans to take charge of their own destiny.” (Diane Elson, University of Essex)

“A refreshing and comprehensive political economy perspective on Africa’s socioeconomic transformation within the post-2015 development agenda. It is a must read for both economists and non-economists who yearn for freedom from the ‘Africa rising’ mantra. A highly compelling and wonderfully readable story.” (Khabele Matlosa, African Union Commission, Ethiopia)

Book Description Policy Press, United Kingdom, 2016. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Since 2000, countries across Africa have maintained over a decade of unprecedented economic expansion in a phenomena known as Africa rising . However, despite pockets of strong economic growth, Africa still faces major development challenges. In this important book the contributors argue that Africa as a continent must work on securing social and political stability and building effective economic governance to ensure the development of a society that is socially, economically and politically inclusive. Looking beyond the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) the contributors highlight what they consider to be the 12 major public policy conversations of the continent post-2015, from the legacy of African leadership, to the youth bulge and resulting unemployment, and climate change. The volume presents policy makers, academics and students with a chance to take a fresh look at urgent emerging challenges in post-MDG African development. Bookseller Inventory # AAJ9781447328537
