Development in Senegal: A difficult development despite numerous assets
- Main content
- Critical review of literature
- Research Strategy
Presently, Senegal is one of the most important economies in Western Africa and, after the political issues in Côte d'Ivoire and Nigeria, one of the few countries which can reach the goals of the UN Millennium project in 2015. Nevertheless, we have here the example of a long-term low economic growth in spite of good initial conditions, and which were better than that of China's. For instance, we will see how one of the first independent countries in Africa wasn't able to take advantage of a lot of assets which are lacking in the other African countries. By choosing this country, we will study the different possibilities for an African developing country in terms of development, and the role that it has to play in the current context of globalization.
