Call for Papers: 1st Africa Graduate Conference


Date:  17th – 19th August, 2017
Venue: Wisconsin International University College, Accra, Ghana
Theme: The 21st Century Research: Where Theory Meets Practice for Sustainable Development

Does it really matter when the two words ‘theory’ and ‘practice’ are used in conjunction with each other? Indeed, does it matter at all whether researchers in the 21st century consider the congruence of theory and practice for the sustainable development of societies? Leaders of nations have been advancing the global sustainability agenda. This leadership is however entreated to see synergy as a tool and not as a threat in its quest for sustainable development. It is a leadership that should be willing to connect the dots between top-down and bottom-up approaches in policy formulation and implementation. There is therefore the need for graduate researchers to provide practical solutions to support the sustainable development agenda of such leaders.

Building on this agenda, the maiden edition of the Africa Graduate Conference 2017, seeks to unearth answers concerning the role of academia and the graduate research community in ensuring that theory becomes practicable in the 21st century for a sustainable development of Africa.

The conference will deliberate on issues regarding theories, frameworks, and empirical evidence on the conditions and tools for effective and sustainable development.
