Senior Fellow Hany Besada, alongside George Kararach and Timothy M. Shaw, published Development in Africa: refocusing the lens after the millennium development goals, distributed by The University of Chicago Press Books.
Though the fact gets little international attention, in recent years countries across Africa have seen unprecedented economic growth, a boom that stretches back to 2000 and has made a huge difference in the lives of citizens in countless nations. Nonetheless, the continent still faces major development challenges. This book brings together a sterling roster of contributors to analyze present and future development in Africa, post-Millennium Development Goals. It presents twelve major public policy conversations that they deem essential to Africa’s future growth and success.
Hany Besada is a regional advisor at the African Mineral Development Centre of the UN Economic Commission for Africa and Research Professor at the Institute of African Studies at Carleton University, Canada. He is also a Senior Fellow at the University of Ottawa.
