CUSA Director Richard Matthew will attend the University of Waterloo for the Centre for International Governance Innovation’s event entitled, “Africa’s Quiet Revolution.” The event is part of a series of talks called the CIGI Signature Lectures. The series presents important international topics to raise public awareness and understanding on a variety of current global issues and features some of the most prominent and acclaimed figures in their respective areas of global governance.
Speaker Margaret McMillan, Associate Professor of Economics at Tufts University, argues that improved productivity growth and declining labour force in the agriculture sector, coupled with improvements in governance and increased education levels in rural children, could be signals of ‘quiet revolution’ towards the modernization of Africa.
