Event Profile
Redefining South-South Cooperation: Africa on the Centre stage, a three-day conference, will be organized by Centre for African Studies, University of Mumbai. The concept of South- South cooperation is in the process of transformation. It is no longer limited to the government driven model of collaboration among the countries of the South to influence collectively the global, political and economic scenario. It has become broad based and includes not only the government but the private sector, educational, research institutions and civil society organizations as well. Today South-South cooperation is not an option but an imperative for the developing countries to meet their common challenges. Central to the debate is if this new axis of South- South initiatives will lead to pro- people development with equity outcomes that will trickle down to the disadvantaged or will these convergent interests help Africa break away from its dependence on the north? The nascent engagement with Africa is however fraught with multiple challenges. However, some sections in the academia and civil society feel that with adequate legal and social safeguards mechanisms devised at the level of the Africa Union and the state and proper management by the Africans, the collaboration will greatly benefit the stakeholders in particular and the countries of the global South in general.

It invites papers that will highlight key areas such as: Civil society, Conflict, peace and terrorism, Democracy, good governance, human rights, Economic cooperation, Food security, Gender equality, Media, Regional organizations, Science and Technology, Strategic cooperation, Trade and investment; extractive and non extractive sector, Shared Cultural Heritage, Common Historical Experiences, and Role of Diaspora in leveraging South-South Cooperation.
