About the book
The African Union’s Agenda 2063 is ambitious. It advocates for, among others,
• equitable and people-centred growth and development;
• eradication of poverty;
• development of human capital;
• creation of infrastructure and provision of public goods and services;
• empowerment of women and youth;
• promotion of peace and security, and the strengthening of democratic states, and
• creating participatory and accountable governance institutions.
New African Thinkers: Agenda Africa, 2063 presents the thinking of emerging scholars on these critical issues – those on whose shoulders the responsibility rests for taking this agenda forward. The book will be an essential reference for researchers and educators who are interested in Africa’s developmental path as designed in the Agenda 2063.
Does the African continent want to be economically and socially sustainable as well as environmentally safe? What is the role of culture and how does it shape development strategies? In New African Thinkers: Culture at the Heart of Sustainable Development, the authors argue that culture – defined broadly as the way of life, system of values and controls, and modes of practice and expression – lies at the heart of a re-imagined Africa as a place of prosperity and socio-economic well-being, integration, and self-determination. By contextualising the discourse of development, the authors hope to influence policy and practice towards shifting the narrative from ‘one size fits all’ to a more morally justified and socially diverse model.
