Since independence, governments in Central Africa have undergone institutional change accompanied by a significant level of development. But with the advances in this mineral resource-rich part of the continent have come challenges that threaten the gains made and the region’s stability. These include conflicts, threats of extremism and challenges associated with state formation.
This seminar will cover key trends facing the region, including challenges to peace and stability. It will also explore options for regional and continental policy makers.
This event is co-hosted with the Organisation Internationale de la Francophonie, Addis Ababa.
