Africa: The Lost Continent? View details

Africa – The Lost Continent? Even though Africa boasts a fifth of the world's population and is a continent rich in resources, the potential of this part of the world still remains largely untapped. Corrupt governments, the legacies of colonization, coup d'états, civil wars, bad governance and unfortunate natural disasters have all conspired to hinder Africa's growth and development. This course will take an in-depth look at Africa over the course of the last one hundred years. In particular, this course will focus on the following: the European ‘Scramble’ for Africa in the late 19th and early 20th centuries; decolonization and independence movements; the trials of statehood; problems posed by terrorism, famine, environmental degradation and AIDS; Rwanda’s genocide; apartheid and post-apartheid South Africa; the China Syndrome; the Arab Spring and its consequences; and Africa in the new Millennium.
