Call for Papers for the 8th International Interdisciplinary Conference, to be held in Nairobi, Kenya on June 27 to 30, 2017 at Multimedia University of Kenya

General conference theme: “Development from below and from above in Africa”

Conference Venue: Multimedia University of Kenya, Nairobi, Kenya

Sponsors: African Interdisciplinary Studies Association (AISA), Kenya Scholars and Studies Association (KESSA) and AIDAL, Multimedia University of Kenya

Africa has been willing and unwilling recipient of many models of development, some of which have been top down while others have been bottom up. Many of these models have been developed outside Africa while others have been generated largely from within the continent. Fifty years after independence, there are many countries in Africa which are still struggling to find which models are suitable to their development needs. They are still looking for way forward in terms of which development models work better. There is an emergence of development models that are hybrids of bottom up and top down in which there is a middle ground. In Kenya for example, the creation of the devolved units at County level is seen as a middle ground, the same to states in Nigeria and some regions in South Africa. The tensions between devolved units and national or federal governments in Africa suggest that hybrids have their own challenges as well. Julius Nyerere’s Ujamaa and Jomo Kenyatta’s Harambee have often been seen as development models from above while others see them as having grassroots origins. What are some of the top down or bottom up development models that have worked successfully in Africa? To what extent are these development models internal or external? How can we determine success of a development model? What are the parameters and characteristics that one needs to look for, to determine success or failure of a development model? What is the way forward? These are some of the questions that the conference organizers hope will be answered by participants.

Organized and hosted by African Interdisciplinary Studies Association (AISA), this 8th International Interdisciplinary Conference will be held on June 27 to 30, 2018 at Nairobi, Kenya. The conference will bring together scholars from all over the world to make presentations on matters that touch on Africa.

Amutabi at africanstudiesassociaiton@gmail.com or mauriceamutabi@gmail.com or neddylinnet@gmail.com or Amutabi@yahoo.com or Amutabi@gmail.com

The deadline for submission of full papers or PowerPoint presentation is May 30, 2018.
