In the media, we hear a lot of worrying news from Africa: refugees, attacks, Ebola, starvation, corruption... But Africa is much more than that: it is a continent in transition, with developments occurring at breakneck speed.

They do this to acquire new insights that not only benefit African society, but can teach the West something too. Read about this in the new research dossier ‘Africa reconsidered’.
