Redefining Development: Examining Alternative Approaches in Africa and Asia
Asian and African countries have for centuries partnered with the colonial West. What have been the results? New partnerships have lately been developing, for example between Asian powers China, India, Japan, Korea, and their less developed partners in Africa and Asia. This year’s theme suggests the need to analyze the traditional approaches to development in these regions, and to explore and consider both the recent trends and other alternative approaches to development that may better address the unique needs and challenges faced by communities in Africa and Asia.
The one-day conference will be held on October 7th (Saturday) 2023. In the morning, we will have a plenary session with two key note speeches followed by two round-table project presentations and discussions. The academic presentations will take place in the afternoon starting at 13:00. Parallel sessions will fall under two broad themes:
1. SYMBIOTIC AFRASIAN PARTNERSHIPS: Lessons & Future ambitions
2. REDIFINING AFRASIAN POLITICAL &SOCIO-ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT
A third plenary session, and the main one, will be held at 16:20 after the academic presentations.
