With unprecedented access, [this film] chronicles her historic first year in office"--Container
Globalisation and economic success : policy lessons for developing countries( Book )

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a rapidly globalising world, and with Africa growing at approximately five per cent a year, what lessons can be learned to enable Africa to take advantage of the opportunities offered by international trade and access to international markets? How will the continent seize the moment so that recent economic gains give way to even higher rates in the future? This conference report discusses globalization and economic development in Africa and other developing countries. It identifies best practices for emerging economies engaging with globalization and examines the nexus between politics and economics in identifying and codifying lessons from high growth. The report pinpoints the relevant macro- and microeconomic steps necessary for higher rates of economic growth in countries that have undergone significant political change and have dealt with acute sociopolitical challenges

9 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In January 2006, after the Republic of Liberia had been racked by fourteen years of brutal civil conflict, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf was sworn in as president, an event that marked a tremendous turning point in the history of the West African nation. In this memoir Sirleaf shares the story of her rise to power, including her early childhood; her experiences with abuse, imprisonment, and exile; and her fight for democracy and social justice. She reveals her determination to succeed in multiple worlds, from her studies in the United States to her work as an international bank executive, to campaigning in some of Liberia's most desperate and war-torn villages and neighborhoods. It is the tale of an outspoken political and social reformer who fought the oppression of dictators and championed change. By telling her story, Sirleaf encourages women everywhere to pursue leadership roles at the highest levels of power, and gives us all hope that we can change the world
Demain, la nouvelle Afrique! by Adama Gaye( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in French and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On ne parle plus que de l'Afrique. Trop de déceptions ont cependant continué d'empêcher son décollage, et en ont fait une terre de désespoir: mauvaise gouvernance, cupidité de ses dirigeants publics ou de certains de ses partenaires privés ou publics, intrusion des puissances étrangères, des institutions internationales ou encore manque de capacités humaines endogènes, sont parmi les causes qui font douter d'elle. Pourtant, après avoir été longtemps un grand sceptique, l'auteur de cet essai, fin connaisseur de l'Afrique, offre ici des raisons de croire que sa vraie heure est venue !

Challenges for New Leadership Teams in Fragile States by Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this brief, Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf, President of the Republic of Liberia, shares lessons learned from her experience in leading a post-conflict country. She emphasizes the importance of taking a broader view of the national leadership system while building national leadership capacities and cautions against adopting a one size fits all approach. Drawing from Liberia's recent turnaround, she identifies key capacities that need to be developed. Fragile states pose a challenge for good leadership-for renewal and reform. States in the grip of poverty with broken socioeconomic infrastructure and a political culture of impunity, require courageous leadership, one that is unafraid of risks and able to challenge itself to be innovative and look toward the future. She points out that consciousness of ethics forces the setting of standards and requires leaders to lead by good example, particularly when it comes to demonstrating and imparting honesty, tolerance, participatory democracy, work ethics, and understanding
