Camden Conference - The New Africa

Africa is home to the world's poorest nations, but also has a dozen economies that maintained 7-percent growth rates over the last decade. Africa is the last major frontier for resource development, while simultaneously struggling with some of the world's oldest, most corrupt and filthiest oil and mining ventures. While Africa suffers from ethnic and religious violence and poverty, it is blessed with rich and creative cultures and vibrant civil societies. These are only a few of the contradictions and conundrums that will frame the 2016 Camden Conference on the theme of Africa, a massive and often mysterious continent. camdenconference.org
