How COVID-19 Is Putting The Rule Of Law To The Test Across Africa

quoting Barry R. Weingastvia The Conversation
Thursday, July 9, 2020

A number of Africa’s fragile democracies have become vulnerable to the sword of leaders assuming wide-ranging powers under cover of emergency responses to COVID-19. Partly for this reason, Good Governance Africa has published a set of articles that conceptualise COVID-19 as a wicked problem. A “wicked problem” is exemplified by multiple stakeholders interacting in complex and unpredictable ways. It is difficult to identify and even more difficult to solve.
