About the book

More than a thousand Africans, in 46 countries – women and men, anglophone and francophone, and from very different backgrounds – were involved in this exploration. They first determined the status quo in Africa at the dawn of the twenty-first century, and then constructed four scenarios for the next 25 years.

These scenarios were given metaphorical names: the lions are trapped; the lions are hungry; the lions come out of their den; and the lions mark their territory. In each case, there is a consideration of the conditions that must be in place for these scenarios to become reality.

The projected possible futures will guide Africans and will also be helpful to people from other continents who would like to help Africa to progress in the direction it chooses.
