The seminar will present the first results from the joint project on African Futures between the Institute for Security Studies and the Pardee Centre for International Futures, University of Denver. This will be a pre-launch view of a publication with the same name to be released on the margins of the Assembly of Heads of State and Government of the African Union in Addis Ababa during February 2011. It present the `business as usual` prospects for Africa on a variety of areas for the next forty years including implications of the global shifts in power and influence, human development prospects, economic growth and transformation and socio-political changes such as prospects for democratization, rule of law and stability.
