This conference examines emergent issues of health and its interconnections with peace, security and development in Africa and her Diaspora, with major emphasis upon critical analysis and the development of new, innovative thoughts and proposals. Together, we will explore the prospects for bridging related gaps in theory and policy on the conference theme, and identify best practices and models of health -peace and development in Africa/Diaspora.
We strongly encourage submission of paper proposals that are based on case studies and best practices, on both domestic and/or international topics pertinent to the theme of the conference. What are the roles of politics, democracy, and law herein? Are there successful programs or best practices for addressing emergent health/peace and security issues that impact development?; eg. HIV-Aids/malaria/tb; reproductive rights; war and peace; terrorism; communal conflict; youth violence/conflict; gender/minority rights; piracy; environmental justice; etc.
