A nation must think before it acts.
June 28, 2022 | 10:00 am to 11:00 am | Africa Program
A number of coups and attempted coups in sub-Saharan Africa in 2020 and 2021 call into question the state of representative government on the continent and the commitment of its ruling elite to democracy. Is this indicative of a retreat from democracy, emulating what appears to be a global trend toward autocracy, or a response to the current world situation, including the Covid pandemic? Or is it just a momentary bit of backsliding that can be reversed?
Join our panel of experts who will address the issue of democratization in sub-Saharan Africa. Former Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs Tibor Nagy and Professor Paul Nantulya of the National Defense University will join FPRI trustee and Chair of the Africa Program, former ambassador Charles Ray for a look at the state of democracy in Africa.
