Call for proposals: We welcome contributions that focus on the following sub-themes or any related topic:

  • Inclusive development — redistributive models; business and human rights; rights-based economies and financial institutions; global supply chains; inequalities; and Agenda 2030 and the Sustainable Development Goals.

  • Social transformation, movements, and resistance — new forms of civic and cultural engagement, education, and pedagogy; the intersection of theater, art and activism; music, performance, and visual culture; new technologies; resistance to anti-rights movements; and democratic fragility.

  • Climate change and sustainability — climate and environmental justice; ecological disaster; natural resources exploitation; building sustainable futures; corporate interests; and fiscal and economic dimensions.

  • Belonging in Africa and for People of African Descent — migration; evolving feminist methods and the decolonization of norms; human rights in cities and localities; youth; intersectionality; identities; equity; racial and social justice; and reparations.

We especially encourage workshops, roundtables, and panels that bridge coalition thinking by placing scholars, policy designers, practitioners, artists, and activists in a space of engagement.
