Is it possible to forecast the future in Africa?

Array ( [1] => anonymous user )

by Alioune Sall


Any analysis that attempts to anticipate the future can never be a  foregone conclusion regardless of  where it  is  in  the world, and particularly not in Africa. In some countries where the African Futures Institute (AFI) has been asked to undertake such an analysis,   it proved necessary to stop, as in the case of Zimbabwe and Mauritania because of changes that had taken place in the domestic political context. Elsewhere, we have pursued the work to its conclusion, although without the debate on the possible visions of the  future taking place in the end.
