Stockholm

Plats: ABF-huset, Sveavägen 41, Stockholm.
Arrangör: Olof Palmes internationella center och ABF Stockholm

Mikael Eriksson, forskare på NAI samt forskningsledare på FOI deltar

För sex år sedan startades den arabiska våren i Tunisien, som gav förhoppningar om en demokratisk utveckling och bättre respekt för mänskliga rättigheter, och som spreds till grannländerna. I Tunisien styr en koalitionsregering men läget är labilt. Under seminariet beskrivs och analyseras läget och utsikterna i regionen. Vilka är framtidsperspektiven?

Seminar: Northern Africa and the Sub-Saharan – Parallel Worlds or Pan-African Sisters?
,

The Nordic Africa Institute in Uppsala

For invited participants only.

To face challenges like terrorism, climate change and armed conflicts, the heads of states in the African Union have frequently emphasized that Africa’s countries must act as one. But just how unified is Africa today? The Nordic Africa Institute invites you to explore this question. Critical exclusionists say that North Africa belongs to the Arab hemisphere, while inclusionary Pan-Africanists say that North Africa and the Sub-Saharan are one, and that peace and security cannot exist unless they are brought together.
