This international conference looks at cutting-edge research, opinion and analysis from leading academics, economists, practitioners and journalists of Africa to provide a snapshot of the hottest issues on the continent today. Bringing together interdisciplinary approaches to refigure the debate in investment, politics and development Africa Redux asserts that the continent's complexity demands a nuanced understanding of the factors that influence its economic climate. This has become especially urgent in light of the Africa Rising narrative, and the new financial geographies created by capital flows following the financial crisis, as well as instability in the Sahel and North Africa.
