Abstract:

Elsie Eyakuze shares her thoughts on how she sees African development evolving in the twenty-first century. She argues that ideas around development are built upon a foundation of cultural value systems that go far deeper than economic indicators can articulate. Part of the development process entails resolving the ongoing conflicts between traditional value systems and modern ones, including tensions brought up by politics such as feminism and democracy. She discusses these challenges in the context of the African Renaissance idea, which is more comprehensive and appropriate than the currently popular ‘Rebranding Africa’ concept.
