Africultures invites you to consult its special edition devoted entirely to the economy and cultural development of Africa. This report, produced in partnership with CulturesFrance, is in two sections. The first is a summary of the “Maintenant l'Afrique” meetings held in Paris in October 2006 and their pre-conference sectoral workshop reports. In the second experts, researchers, and professionals analyze and expound on issues related to the themes of the meetings, such as “cultural wealth and economic development”.
