Ghanaian President Nana Akufo-Addo Discusses Democracy and Development in Africa

A new age is dawning on the African continent, one that will utilize democratic processes and economic development to create a prosperous, independent future for the African people, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, president of the Republic of Ghana, told an audience at the Yale School of Management on September 27.

“Democracy and freedom are providing the political, social, and economic platforms for Africa’s long-awaited development,” Akufo-Addo said. “Africa is on the cusp of building a great new civilization, one which will unleash the great energy and potential of the African people.”

Akufo-Addo spoke about democracy and development in Africa to a capacity audience in Yale SOM’s Zhang Auditorium as part of the Leaders Forum lecture series. The series brings leaders from business and government to Yale to speak students. The event was also part of Yale President Peter Salovey’s Yale Africa Initiative.

Yale Women For Africa Forum, 2018

Over the last 20 years, women have increased their presence in governments across Africa, but — like their peers elsewhere — they still lag far behind men. Through its Leadership Forum for Strategic Impact, Yale is working to enhance the knowledge and skills of senior African women leaders and to build a network of peers and thought leaders across the continent. This video illustrates how the Forum — supported by La Fundación Mujeres por África (the Women for Africa Foundation) and Banco Santander — helps to successfully amplify the effectiveness and influence of women in African governments.

Asian Values

Power and values: A Rohingya survivor of genocide in Myanmar pleads for food, and Hungary’s rightwing Prime Minister Viktor Orbán finds common cause with China’s Premier Li Keqiang

Countries that join together through multilateral organizations, whether the Association of Southeast Asian Nations or the United Nations, must determine the values required for pursuit of common goals. Yet there is stark contrast between Asian and western values – with Asia generally focused on order and the collective interest and the West traditionally emphasizing democracy and individual rights. Asia’s many governments – caught between two rivals, China and the United States – could have some influence over which ideals prevail for the continent: “if Asia cannot define its values more clearly, it risks a replay of the Cold War, where it suffered in confrontation between superpowers with deeply opposing ideologies,” explains journalist and author Humphrey Hawksley. A charter on Asian values could provide guidance on a rising China, prevent polarization and reduce hypocrisy of democratic nations failing to respect human rights. A united and thoughtful voice would strengthen Asia. Hawksley urges the continent’s leaders to forge a path in articulating values that contribute to reducing tensions and increasing prosperity. – YaleGlobal

About the Event:

She’s been disruptive in class. She’s rude to the teachers. And now she wants to learn the trumpet. But whose performance is really being judged? A mother and father prepare to discuss their daughter’s progress at the local primary school, but their rare opportunity for some quality time together begins to test the bonds of love, work and family.

Charged, passionate and surprising, Parents’ Evening is a fierce and funny play about modern marriage and parenthood. This European premiere marks the homecoming of a major British talent already acclaimed in America.

London-bred Bathsheba Doran has established a reputation in New York as one of the best playwrights of her generation. Winner of the Berwin Lee Award, and a Susan Smith Blackburn Prize and Writers Guild Award nominee, her plays have appeared at Lincoln Center Theater, and her extensive screenwriting includes Boardwalk Empire and Masters of Sex.

Stella Powell-Jones (YC ’09) is Deputy Director of Jermyn Street Theatre.
