Stephen Ellis Quotes

Instead of more money, what Africa really needs is governments that are responsible to their own voters, that are largely self-financing, that are internationally respectable, and that can attract home some of the hundreds of thousands of talented Africans who currently live in the West. New infusions of aid would likely just perpetuate the kleptocratic regimes that have slowly strangled the continent since independence.




Stephen Ellis, Director of the Africa Program at the International Crisis Group, “How to Rebuild Africa,” Foreign Affairs September/October 2005
