Youth and Africa

Secondo proiezioni delle Nazioni Unite la popolazione africana dovrebbe raddoppiare entro il 2050, arrivando a 2,4 miliardi, ed è previsto raggiunga i 4,3 miliardi entro la fine del secolo. A quel punto nel continente vivrà circa un terzo dell’intera umanità. Molti studi si sono concentrati sul presente e sul futuro dell’Africa e delle sue interconnessioni con l’Europa, ma è raro sentire come i giovani africani vedono e interpretano gli attuali sviluppi nei loro paesi. Per colmare questa lacuna, Youth and Africa presenta sette giovani esperti di spicco del Maghreb e dell’Africa sub-sahariana. Gli autori illustrano sfide e opportunità e ci ricordano che “l’Africa è una voce da ascoltare, non un problema da risolvere”.

Versione rivista e ampliata dei paper presentati alla conferenza New-Med intitolata “Youth and Africa: Exploring New Approaches to Economic Cooperation, Security and Migration”, tenutasi a Roma il 5 marzo 2020 e organizzata dall'Istituto Affari Internazionali (IAI) e dal Segretariato OSCE, in cooperazione con Ministero degli Affari esteri e della Cooperazione internazionale, Fondazione Compagnia di San Paolo e German Marshall Fund of the United States.
