In this edition, we focus on the recent report of Prime Minister Tony Blair's Commission for Africa. Launched on March 11 2005, the 450-page document has the usual media-friendly rhetoric, which reminds one of the arrays of past messianic documents, conferences and workshops on how to jerk Africa out of the poverty in which it is undoubtedly mired in. While some now suspect a hidden agenda each time another save-Africa- initiative is launched in the West, (notice that it has now become obligatory for many Western celebrities to travel to Africa, and usually be photographed with AIDS patients), there are some who do not entirely dismiss such efforts. Such resilient hopes, anchored of course on vivid memories of the colossal failure of similar efforts in the past, is encapsulated in the title of the contribution by Rajesh Makwana: Report of the Commission for Africa: Will This Be The One? The various contributors bring different perspectives in their assessment of the Commission's report, and of its chances of succeeding where others have failed.
