The Hoover Institution hosted a public panel discussion “Africa In An Emerging World” on Monday, January 14, 2019 from 4:00pm – 5:15pm PST.
Africa will be home to much of world’s population growth in coming decades, giving it a young, growing, and increasingly urbanized population. At the same time, it faces economic challenges and will acutely feel the effects of a changing climate. The discussion will explore what these demographic and environmental dynamics, alongside the promise of advancing technologies and new means of communications, will mean for governance and development across the continent.
Moderated by Ambassador George Moose, United States Institute of Peace and former assistant secretary of state for African affairs.
- Anthony Carroll, Manchester Trade
- Ambassador Chester Crocker, Georgetown University and former assistant secretary of state for African affairs
- Mark Giordano, Georgetown University
- Jack Goldstone, George Mason University
- Andre Pienaar, C5 Capital
- Shivani Siroya, founder and CEO of tala.co
This event was open to the general public and part of a series led by George P. Shultz whose intention is to learn from our changing world, to map our governance options in response, and to help structure a variety of efforts going forward.
