Book launch: 'The New Africa' by Erika Bjerström
Wednesday 5th of October at 16.00-18.00 in the NAI library
In her new book, award winning Swedish national TV correspondent Erika Bjerström presents an engaging portrait of the African continent that will surprise the reader. Contrary to the message relayed by the media and the aid industry, war, violence and hunger are declining, whilst economic growth and democracy are on the rise. So why are the media and aid organisations keeping Western audiences in the dark about the continent’s impressive progress? This question will be discussed by the author at the launching of her book at the Nordic Africa Institute’s library. The event is in English and open to all - read the invitation here.
