The Future of Africa in 2050

People may acknowledge that Africa has certainly made great strides in its most recent history. However, the bigger question is whether these changes will continue. This piece looks at likely scenarios for Africa into the future based on existing and emerging patterns.Thank goodness as I was getting ready to co-write this book, I ran across a monograph being done by the Institute for Security Studies¹ in South Africa called African Futures 2050.
I had the distinct pleasure of interviewing Dr. Barry Hughes, Director of the Pardee Center of International Futures at the University of Denver in the United States and a partner on the ISS project. This sub-section reflects our discussion.²
