Reviving democracy in Africa requires Europe to do the same

Idasa’s executive director Paul Graham warned that reviving democracy in Africa requires Europe to do the same. At the Netherlands Institute for Multipary Democracy conference held in Brussels earlier this month, Graham spoke of the need to understand the revitalisation of democracy as a global concern, focusing on the challenges that emerge as Europe cooperates with Africa to help us with our democratisation agenda. He warned that this would need the revitalisation of democracy in Europe itself, and more collaboration between European and African partners to build stronger democratic societies in both regions simultaneously and through joint effort.
