In a new (short) film, Democracy in Africa’s Co-editor Nic Cheeseman talks about his recent book, the prospects for democracy in Africa, and the importance of this political moment. The interview covers the challenges facing democratisation across the continent, the drivers of Africa’s democratic successes, and visions for African democracies in the future. Will the paths of these diverse polities start to converge? Or will they actually move further apart?
Take a look at the video here:

Great interview 🙂 I would love to hear Cheeseman’s opinion about current events in the DRC.
