Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) in Retrospect: Africa’s Development Beyond 2015

Description

The African Students’ Association (AFSA) at the University of Alberta extends an invitation to students, scholars, professionals, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), and community members interested in Africa’s development to this MDG conference. A lot of focus has recently been given to the post-2015 development agenda. However, what this conference hopes to achieve is to place more emphasis on Africa to specifically ascertain the successes, failures and possibilities ahead. Papers are sought on all eight MDGs from all applicable disciplines/sectors, both those engaging with the broader theoretical implications of the goals and those with specific country-based case studies. Gender is a critical issue in the African context – and thus, papers with such focus are particularly welcome.

Abstracts should target but not be limited to the following broad themes (please be specific in your submission which theme your proposal fits into):

1. Inequality, gender, and socio-economic development
2. Global/good governance, natural resources and the environment
3. Poverty eradication, empowerment and emancipation
4. Health and education

The conference will also consider the eight MGDs themselves as the underlying sub-themes:

1. Eradicating extreme poverty and hunger
2. Achieving universal primary education
3. Promoting gender equality and women empowerment
4. Reducing child mortality
5. Improving maternal health
6. Combatting HIV/AIDS, Malaria and other diseases
7. Ensuring environmental sustainability
8. Developing a global partnership for development
