Heroic Achievement or Folly, What Would Kapuscinski Make of Development Today?


Download: Audio, Video

Speaker(s): Lord Malloch-Brown
Chair: Professor Mary Kaldor

Recorded on 30 January 2013 in New Theatre, East Building.

Ryszard Kapuscinski exposed the follies of Africa’s rulers and officials while showing an intense emotional identification with the continent’s people. Would he see the current state of Africa as a further triumph of the elites or the redemptive emergence of a more just continent?

Mark Malloch-Brown is a former UN deputy secretary-general and was head of the UN Development Programme. He is the author of The Unfinished Global Revolution.
