We’re teaming up with the Johns Hopkins School of Advance International Studies (SAIS) in Washington to hold a debate on the Brazilian model of development and its implications for African countries.
Brazil has emerged as a globally significant economic power in the last decade, achieving inclusive growth that has reduced poverty and inequality.
Does this constitute a distinct new ‘model’ of development? And with many African countries currently failing to translate growth into concerted poverty reduction, could Brazil’s experience offer a way forward?
