|Descrizione||Africa in the Globalisation Era Poverty and Development in the third Millennium|
Africa in the Globalisation Era, Poverty and Development in the Third Millennium is the result of two Conferences held in the University of Naples “Federico II” (Department of Political Sciences) on 19th and 20th March. The participation of Professor Riccardo Pelizzo, representing Abel Kinyondo, Senior Researcher at REPOA (Research on Poverty Alleviation) and Senior Lecturerat at University of Dar as Salaam, and Zim Nwokora, a lecturer at Deakin University in Melbourne (Australia), has been very important in order to analyze Africa’s problems. Africa really needs better leaders even though many root-causes of the problems it faces (conflict, instability) are to be found in the past: slave trade, colonialism and other forms of neo-colonialism. Therefore, it is reasonable to ask a question: Considering the necessity of «developing tourism and capitalizing on their natural assets-parks, mountains, oceans, islands and so on», how can the Continent play a major role in the international community?
