The World Debate
Are African Leaders Failing Their People?
The levels of violence and war across Africa have fallen dramatically. New data confirms most African states are now more stable and democratic.

Political transition: Africa's Achilles heel?


But what kind of democracy?

And is Africa's great potential still being held up by governance issues related to political transition?

All the above issues took centre stage at the World Economic Forum meeting on Africa, which took place this June in Cape Town.

Political and business leaders joined the BBC World Debate to discuss the impact of good governance on economic growth and stability and the lessons to be learned from extreme cases such as Zimbabwe.


On BBC World News on Saturday 21st and 22nd June.
