Sub-Saharan Africa has changed immensely over the years and many argue it is no longer a troubled ‘dark continent.’ Many countries are now enjoying economic growth and political progress, which can only be seen as a positive factor. With a shift in leadership and governance the ‘new’ Africa appears to be ready to play an important role in world affairs.

This event will hear from Professor Robert Rotberg who will be discussing how Africa is a success story but has immense challenges.
