Abstract: We compare the notion of higher-dimensional convexity, as defined by Carrière, for real projective manifolds with the existence of hemispheres. We show that if an i-convex real projective manifold M of dimension n for an integer i with $ 0 < i < n$ has an i-dimensional hemisphere, then M is projectively homeomorphic to $ {{\mathbf{S}}^n}/\Gamma $ where $ \Gamma $ is a finite subgroup of $ O(n + 1,{\mathbf{R}})$ acting freely on $ {{\mathbf{S}}^n}$.
