Middle class – driver of change?
“How do we define the middle class? In Africa, it is not obvious who belongs or not. Moreover, even when we manage to define – is it certain they are the drivers of socio-economic change in Africa? “ NAI’s Senior Advisor Henning Melber is among the invited panelists to discuss “Inequality and Middle Class Development in Africa” at an international workshop in Cape Town, 4-6 May.
He is also the editor of the forthcoming book “The Rise of Africa’s Middle Class”.
