Cilliers, J., Hughes, B.B. and Moyer, J.D. (2011). "African Futures 2050: The Next Forty Years."

Monograph 175. Institute for Security Studies and Pardee Center for International Futures, Josef Korbel School of International Studies, University of Denver. Pretoria, South Africa, and Denver, CO, USA.

This monograph provides an extensive analysis of the projected course of African development to 2050. Combining the deep and wide knowledge of Africa within the Institute for Security Studies with extensive use of the Pardee Center's International Futures modeling system, the discussion looks across most major development-related issue areas - demographics, economics, sociopolitical change, the environment, and human development itself, including health and education - over an extended forecast period. While not proposing specific policy initiatives, the analysis provides a context within which those who pursue sustainable human development can consider policy options.
