Botswana - questioning an African success story

Hillbom, Ellen LU (2006) Utvecklingsforskningens dag, 2006Lund University Development Research Day, 2006
Abstract
Botswana has been depicted as an African success story having the highest long-run growth rates over the last four decades since independence combined with a stable multi-party democratic system. In this paper the success story is critically investigated and analysed from a structural perspective. The question is posed if Botswana's success truly is a case of economic development as opposed to growth.
