Edited by: Karl Wohlmuth, Achim Gutowski, Magda Kandil, Tobias Knedlik, Osmund O. Uzor

This book examines new macroeconomic policy frameworks for Africa, and it discusses the role of policies for generating sustainable and inclusive growth. The responses of the macroeconomic policymakers in Africa to the Euro crisis and to the recent globalization trends are reviewed and analyzed. The book also analyzes the economics of the "Arab Spring" countries by focusing on the socioeconomic conditions and the economic policy factors that have led to the "Arab Spring" events. Highlighted are the cases of Egypt and Tunisia, and the new strategic and policy frameworks in these countries after the democratic changes. An agenda for comprehensive reforms is presented.
