Description of the Course: African Institutions are Leading the African Transformation.

Africa: a continent in a deep transformation.

Since the creation of the Organisation of the African Unity (OAU), now called African Union, the African political leaders are moving irreversibly towards full economic integration, with the aim of creating the African Continental Free-Trade Area (1 billion people, GDP combined: 1.2 trillion) consisting of fifty-four African Countries.

While this goal is very complex (e.g., the intra-African trade represents only 10% of the total African trade) and will require substantial investments (especially in infrastructure); they are taking decisive steps to achieve it.

Some people are talking about “Africa as emerging continent.” Although we believe it is premature to consider the African continent as an emerging market (although many countries are already emerging economies, in fact, South Africa is a member of the BRICS Countries), rather we can affirm that Africa is the next “frontier market.”

To achieve this vision of a “United Africa”, four African institutions are playing a fundamental role.

  1. The “African Union” establishes the political vision.
  2. The NEPAD is the executing agency of the African Union
  3. The Economic Commission for Africa (United Nations) is the responsible, among other things, to organise all the information necessary to achieve African Integration
  4. The African Development Bank is primarily responsible for financing and supporting development projects in Africa

The African Union has agreed the “Agenda 2063: The future we want for Africa” an essential document to understand the vision of the African leaders.

Knowing these institutions (*), its operation, its programs and the information they provide is vital to comprehend the profound transformation taking place in Africa.

(*) The Regional Economic Communities also play a fundamental role (analysed in another course).
