Course description & goals (final competences)

In recent times, there have been much discussion about Africa’s poverty and stagnation. It is widely acknowledged that poverty and economic stagnation in Africa is the greatest tragedy of the twenty-first century. This has led to a number of reports to be published, suggesting policies to tackle Africa’s twin problems (Millennium Report 05, Commission for Africa Report 05 Sachs 05).
It is argued that forty years ago, Africa was richer than Asia, and the Continent of Asia was the poorest continent yet, it is now the fastest growing economy and poverty has been reduced in many countries in Asia. Even though Africa is blessed with most mineral resources, such as oil, gold, diamonds and other high value natural resources. .So what might have gone wrong in Africa? Many explanations have been offered for Africa’s poor performance in terms of poverty reduction and economic growth
In this course, students will learn about what Africa and the world community can do to change the situation. The goal is to impart to students the skills and knowledge needed to understand Public debate on Africa’s relationship with EU and the rest of the world ,and to able to apply the knowledge acquired here to solve the problems of Africa and poor developing countries.
