The Trouble with Senegal

As Abdoulaye Wade, 85, ignores cries - both at home and abroad - that his bid for a third term as president is unconstitutional, François Picard’s panel argues over the democratic credentials of a nation often hailed as a beacon of democratic light on the continent.

  • Doudou SIDIBE. Head of Abdoulaye Wade's campaign in France, Senegalese Democratic Party;
  • Amadou GAYE. Political strategist, Senegalese Socialist Party;
  • Mamadou DIOUF. Director, Institute for African Studies. Professor of African Studies and History, Columbia University (from New York);
  • Douglas YATES. Professor of Political Science, American University of Paris.

Produced by François Picard, Anelise Borges, Mary Colombel, Yi Song, Pauline Heilmann.
