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

  • Jan 30, 2013 · 6:00 PM
  • LSE

This is not a book session but I thought it may be of interest. I am unsure as to whether I will be able to attend as i will not be out of work before 6pm at the earliest, but I would suggest that anyone wishing to go should meet at 6pm outside of the East Building as the talk starts at 6.30.


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.
