◆Speaker: Prof. Horman Chitonge (Visiting Professor, African Studies Center - TUFS / Professor, Centre for African Studies, University of Cape Town)
◆Title: The Africa Industrious and Industrial Revolutions: What are the Triggers and Enablers?
◆Abstract: In the context of the enduring challenges of industrial development on the African continent, some analysts have been asking whether Africa can industrialise. In this lecture, I argue that the question is not whether Africa can industrial; but whether the triggers and enablers of an industrial revolution in Africa exist.
