GLOBAL PAN-AFRICAN CONFERENCE: THE AFRICA WE WANT
Conference Call for Papers
The first ‘Global Pan-African Conference: The Africa We Want,’ organised by Mboka Festival of Arts Culture and Sport, will take place from Monday, 25 May, to Thursday 28 May 2020 in The Gambia. The 2020 conference commemorates the 120th anniversary of the first Pan African Conference, organised by Henry Sylvester Williams in London. Subsequent GPAC conferences will take place on alternate years. The conference uses as its foundational aims the AU document, ‘Agenda 2063: The Africa We Want’.https://au.int/en/agenda2063/overview
The UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) will be used as reference material as it is a partner in sustainable development. The first conference will focus on issues of governance, women, arts and culture, youth and diaspora.
The object of the conference is not only to contribute to the Pan-African driven Agenda as relates to the ‘Africa We Want’ document but also to focus on how The Gambia can play its part locally, regionally and continentally. The conference also seeks to explore how The Gambian people can benefit from African integration.
We are primarily interested in presentations which cover the topics outlined in the attachment and those which are based on praxis as well as theory (this includes methods and practice from the past and present). We also welcome abstracts from a range of other topics that will be pertinent for Africa in 2020 and beyond.
