UNESCO "Reporting Africa" Syllabus PDF Print E-mail

Update: Report is ready for download

Holding WJEC in an African country will go a long way towards exposing visitors from abroad to the issues in a neglected and marginalised continent. Too often, Africa is assumed to be a single thing, with Africans homogenised into humans untarnished by modernisation or alternatively people prone to acting dangerously.
