A Brief Note On Africa

Over the coming days and weeks, I’ll be incorporating more material on Africa into the blog.

Anyone with a functioning pair of eyes can see that Africa is a rather challenged continent besieged by war, poverty, disease, and economic woe. Hopefully, I will be able to use Book Diplomacy in order to shine a spotlight on some of these issues.

I firmly believe that the African people are not hopeless, war does not have to be their destiny. Western governments have done African people a disservice by treating much of the continent as a charity case in need of salvation.

 As long as the attitude of Western governments doesn‘t change , don’t expect Africa to change either.
