Conference on developing a Pan-African agenda dealing with global issues

28 September 2022

Zoom or CSIR ICC

9:30 am - 4:30 pm

The Mapungubwe Institute for Strategic Reflection (MISTRA), Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung (FES) South Africa, Institute for Global Dialogue and National Institute for the Humanities and Social Sciences (NIHSS)  are pleased to invite you to a conference on ‘’Developing a Pan-African Agenda Dealing with Global Issues’’ on 28 September 2022.

Pan-Africanism has been a compelling vision for the continent for at least a hundred years. As an ideology and movement, it reflects a commitment towards greater collaboration and unity between African countries in tackling the socio-economic issues of the continent.

Despite the apparent independence of African states, and now the ‘Africa rising’ narrative, African countries remain largely excluded from the global economy. As a result, they are among the poorest in the world and the pan-African objectives of political and economic independence are yet to be fully realised. The advancement of a Pan-African agenda is a call to action to reclaim, revive and reassert Pan-Africanism in the face of current global challenges such as low GDP growth, inequality, pandemics and climate change.

This conference aims to ensure that Pan-Africanism remains relevant and ends the marginalisation of the continent from the global economy. A collective Pan-African voice is vital to promoting Africa’s agency in addressing global challenges for sustainable development.
