It is now 20 years since the well-known “Dakar Expedition” that brought together for the first time a significant sector of the ANC leadership and about 60 prominent public figures from inside South Africa. It is also 50 years since Ghana became the first African state to obtain independence from a colonial power. It is 50 years since the first intervention by United Nations “Blue Helmets” in an African conflict. What are the salient lessons to be learnt from those events after all these years?

The output, a horizon of aspirations, will be part of the ongoing Imagine Africa process
