Geography

Geography determines our country, we are stuck with consequences of apartheid, how do we deal with it?

  • Boundaries for an African Renaissance

    Africa’s “Achilles’ heel” is its boundaries, argues Richard Griggs – blocking development and perpetuating conflict.

    Any ‘nation’ is a unique matrix of social, cultural and aspirational characteristics located in a particular time and place.
