Abstract:This book analyzes the recent economic growth in Africa, which has been widely accompanied by rising inequality, using the concept of 'inclusiveness' or 'inclusive development'. Contributions are selected from conference presentations from the African Economic Conference (AEC) 2012, under the theme 'Inclusive and sustainable development in Africa in an age of economic uncertainty'.
