CALL FOR PAPERS: UNU-WIDER Project Conference on African Development: Myths and Realities
The UNU-WIDER Project on “African Development: Myths and Realities” looks at the reasons put forward for Africa’s disappointing development record, attempting to differentiate between myth and reality. It also seeks to determine the relative priorities that need to be given to factors that have in reality most contributed to this record, providing a blue print for public policy into the 21st Century. Substantive papers on African economic development as related to this topic are invited for a conference to take place in Accra, Ghana, December 10 to 11, 2009.
Deadline: October 15th, 2009. [more information]
