Madagascar's Political and Economic Prospects

4 March 2015 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm

Chatham House, London


Paul Melly, Associate Fellow, Africa Programme, Chatham House 
Chair: Bob Dewar CMG, Associate Fellow, Africa Programme, Chatham House




International recognition of Madagascar’s new government, elected in January 2014, brought an end to five years of isolation. By the end of 2014 key donors had announced fresh aid credits and the US restored trade privileges. But progress remains fragile, threatened by outstanding challenges of corruption and environmental degradation. There are concerns over government capacity and political will to implement essential policies to place Madagascar firmly on a path of positive change.

At this meeting Paul Melly will reflect on the findings of a recent research visit to Madagascar, and discuss the trajectory of the country.

Attendance at this event is by invitation only.
