Africa: Dynamics of Conflict, Promises of Renaissance
Last Updated: : Friday 01 November 2013   16:51 Mecca





Al Jazeera Centre for Studies is organising an international conference entitled: "Africa: Dynamics of Conflict, Promises of Renaissance " on 1-3 November 2013 in Doha, with the participation of an array of researchers, eminent figures and former heads of states, along with experts in the fields of development and conflicts in the continent.

The event, which is the largest of its kind in an Arab country, will seek to shed light on the positive developments in Africa during the past two decades. There, countries that used to be hotbeds of humanitarian disasters and famines, or scene of chaos and collapse of state and the rule of law, or both, have seen transformations and become contributors to Africa rebuilding efforts and a source of hope for the region. The continent has also witnessed economic renaissance that has made it one of the fastest growing regions in the world and a favourite destination for new investments. At the same time, the continent has developed an effective mechanism to resolve disputes and address conflicts as continental organizations have turned into important players in addressing the Africa's problems and conflicts.

The seminar will address these important developments through in-depth studies prepared by a group of prominent African experts and leaders, and analyse Arab-African relations and the developments they have gone through.
The center attempts through this seminar to reflect the message of Al-Jazeera Network, which seeks to create platforms for research, discussion and exchange of views on fateful issues of concern to the Arab and African peoples and their shared destiny.
