POST-Open Forum 2012: Words from West Africa on Money, Power & Sex
June 5, 2012 - Cape Town, South Africa
Africa is booming, but inequality is also soaring. What can Africa learn from the Arab uprisings? What should democracy look like on the continent? Has the women’s movement in Africa really been able to affect the lives of poor and marginalized women? What can the rising LGBTI sector learn from other social movements? What should Africa’s relationship with the BRICS countries be? What can Africa learn from the global crisis?
All these questions and many, many more were addressed at the OPENFORUM 2012 Money, Power & Sex: The paradox of unequal growth an unprecedented three-day conference, from May 22-24th, organized by the Africa Foundations of the Open Society in Cape Town, South Africa.
