We controlled for differences between men and women entrepreneurs in terms of talent and the characteristics of their respective firms. Africa’s gender gap in access to finance can have a dramatic impact on social and economic progress.

Why is Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan behaving like a bully? The bullying starts a home where Erdogan sees plots and coups everywhere. The three traditional guardrails that kept Turkish politics in check — the United States, the European Union and Russia — are occupied elsewhere. In the Arab world, Erdogan apparently thinks there is no figure strong enough to oppose the man who believes he is the new sultan. Many other countries are also concerned by his bullying and with good reason.

The Arab Spring took the country by surprise bringing regime change in Tunisia and Libya while Morocco surfed safely on the wave through a constitutional reform. Algeria instead opted for oil money handout via wage hikes and a generous subsidies policy that is now backfiring. Meanwhile it hosted a meeting of the countries bordering Libya, which ended in no deal as conferences on Libya multiply. International observers consider that Algeria is too busy handling its domestic unrest issues and economic red lights making any mediation in Libya a burden that it can’t afford to carry. “Arguably Tebboune’s greater challenge is the resurrection of the Algerian economy, a task not aided by low oil prices.

The 2020 Munich Security Conference showed how the ties that bind global players together are being weaponised in a new great power competition.

The Chinese foreign minister exuded confidence in spearheading the generational shift from a unipolar world to a bipolar one. But, though the topics were bracing, the conference tried hard to stop Westlessness from morphing into hopelessness. This commentary, like all publications of the European Council on Foreign Relations, represents only the views of its authors.
