Africa 2060: Good News From Africa

Registration is now open for the 2010 Pardee Center Conference on “Africa 2060: Good News from Africa." The all-day conference will feature four panels (on Social Development, on Markets and Economy, on Politics and Institutions, and on Society and Culture), a lunch keynote address, and a post-conference reception with African food and music. The conference is being organized by the Frederick S. Pardee Center for the Study of the Longer-Range Future and will bring together leading scholars, practitioners and experts on Africa in a series of discussion panels which will take an in-depth view of current trends in social and economic development, in politics and in culture and society within the Africa continent (and its sub-regions). The goal of the conference is to highlight the trends that are likely to shape the region over the next half century, especially those that have the potential to reach positive outcomes. The conference’s objective is to present a critical assessment of the continent’s potential in areas that are vital to Africa’s future. The conference will seek to incite a conversation focused on the steps needed to craft a better future for the continent, without ignoring the realities on the ground or the difficulty of change. The program of the conference can be found on the link below. For details on the conference contact the Pardee Center Research Initiatives Coordinator, Elaine Teng. Seats to the conference are limited. Please RSVP to the conference by emailing
