As a region, Africa has seen positive economic trends in the last few years, even as the global economy has been mired in a prolonged period of slow growth. Africa has also made significant improvements in democratic governance and political stability as more and more countries experience the peaceful transfer of power and reduced corruption and conflicts. However, challenges abound in both political and economic spheres, including pervasive poverty, rising inequality, fragile democracies, and limited political liberalizations. In this lecture, Dr. Aberra Tesfay, Visiting Assistant Professor of Political Science at St. Norbert College, will discuss recent political and economic developments in sub-Saharan Africa in light of global trends.
