POLITICAL PARTIES IN AFRICA - Conference Series Internal Changes and Foreign Policy of African Countries

21-22th October 2021 – Porto

Organization: CEAUP, Institute for African Studies - Moscow , U. Pretoria

CALL FOR PAPERS
PANELS ACCEPTED FOR THE CONFERENCE

In Africa, the political party (as well as the Trade Union) has been one of the most successful African acculturations in order to enforce social and political change during colonial times. Within the new African States -especially after 1990 and the rise of multiparty elections - an inflated number of political parties and movements has arisen. Regardless of their different social standings, different organisational endurance and their very much different position regarding to power, a flux of new African political organisations keep expressing deep trends of African societies. How much has this phenomena impacted African inner and foreign policies? Is there an African way for the Political Party more than one century after being imported?

This Conference expects to discuss these issues in interdisciplinary mode as well as to give a broad overview on the much different situations that have emerged throughout the continent.
