What: “Building Democracies in Africa.”
Who: H.E. Sir Ketumile Masire, former President of the Republic of Botswana
Event: Botswana is the most politically transparent nation in Africa. It has achieved its peace and stability by utilizing a fair and independent judicial system, and encouraging peaceful and free elections. Faced with large-scale unemployment, heavy dependence on diamond exports and the scourge of HIV/AIDS, Botswana is attempting to foster foreign capitol investment to develop the civil society and an independent private sector media. The Honorable Masire will speak on the critical political and social achievements that have allowed Botswana to maintain a peaceful democracy and begin its transition towards a more market-based economy.
