Some changes for the autumn, and a rather interesting poll regarding corruption in Africa

With the end of the summer months, there have been some important changes around here. Most notably, I have started working as an intern at Spanish think-tank FRIDE (Fundación para las Relaciones Internacionales y el Diálogo Exterior), on their Development and Cooperation Programme. I am guessing this new commitment will probably affect the sort of things that I’ll blog about here, and I am also hoping that for certain things, what I’ll be doing at FRIDE will be reflected here. We are still outlining the sort of work I’ll be involved on, but I’ll try to keep all of you updated on all the news.
I am hoping to put up a blog post this weekend with a number of stories that I have found interesting, and events that are coming up, but for the time being, I’ll leave you with this interesting poll I have found this morning while looking at the African Peer Review Mechanism (APRM): “a mutually agreed instrument voluntarily acceded to by the Member States of the African Union (AU) as an African self-monitoring mechanism”.
The question relates to corruption in Africa and – in what appears as a rather pessimistic assessment, or perhaps an uncommon sign of honesty – you will notice that whoever has created the poll gives you no option to vote for the view that things are being done right in tacking corruption in Africa!!

Have a good weekend!
