Trapped by the Past? Institutional Legacies and African Development

ongoing debate about institutional legacies which still affect African development.

Gareth Austin is professor of international history at the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies, Geneva.

Joseph Inikori is professor of history at the University of Rochester.
