Call for Papers: Webinar on the challenges facing Angolan youth

ISDC and the Angolan Research Network (ARN) are inviting submissions for a joint research workshop on the challenges facing Angolan youth (“A juventude em Angola face aos desafios do future — Forças e fraquezas”). The workshop will be held online on 17 September 2020.

66% of Angola’s population are considered “young”. This online webinar will discuss the role of young people in Angolan society today and in the future. We encourage scholars studying Angola to submit their research and extend the invitation to people in their wider networks.

All proposals must be submitted by August 15, 2020 at angolaresearchnetwork@gmail.com.

Please include a 250-word abstract and the title of your contribution, as well as a short CV.

The webinar will be convened by Dr Wolfgang Stojetz, together with Prof. Filipe Delfim Santos, the Director of the ARN. Please find more information about the webinar and the ARN here: https://www.angolaresearchnetwork.org.
