Town Hall: “What’s the Problem with Term Limits? : Authoritarianism, Development, and A New Impulse for Overturning Old Legacies in Africa.”

November 10 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

On Saturday the 10th of November from 2.00-3.30pm in the Pavilion Room at St. Antony’s College,  the Oxford Africa Society will launch its Town Hall meeting series,  with our first discussion on:

What’s the Problem with Term Limits? : Authoritarianism, Development, and A  New Impulse for Overturning Old Legacies in Africa.”

We will especially be focusing on the links between authoritiarianism, populism and development, comparing some arguably successful models, with the largely less successful models on the continent. We will also highlight the recent youth movements in Cameroon and Uganda. We will consider which reasonable alternatives, if any, would be most acceptable for advancing development on the continent, and whether we will witness a further proliferation and greater success of young political leaders challenging the legacy of authoritarianism, extended and perpertual term limits.

We plan for this to be a very informal fireside chat, but also a place to express ourselves freely and strongly, ponder serious issues together, and ultimately learn from some of the sages we have amongst us. Come and listen from your peers and ask questions, come and represent your countries, your view points, your stories. Thanks and see you all!
