Jean-Yves Ollivier at the Rhodes Forum 2018
The Brazzaville Foundation was honoured to be invited to participate in the 2018 Rhodes Forum organised by the Dialogue of Civilizations Research Institute.
In a panel which included the former Malian President Dioncounda Traoré and the former Guinean Prime Minister Ibrahima Kassory Fofana, our Chairman, Mr Jean-Yves Ollivier, took the opportunity to talk about the role of private sector and foundations in promoting inter-cultural dialogue. He also shared his views concerning the relationship between the African continent and the rest of the world. He argued that governance in Africa should not be based on Western models: African countries should be able to find their own paths based on their own realities and traditions.
