Africa peace imaginaries and ontology: The past, the present and the future

The African Leadership Centre (ALC) invites you to join a panel discussion titled “Africa peace imaginaries and ontology: The past, the present and the future” featuring several researchers

Time: 11:00 to 12:30 GMT

Date: 9 March 2022

This panel welcomes papers that address some of the concerns that include the metanarratives and dominant theories on peace discourses in Africa that have not reflected enough of local experiences and understanding. African peace and conflict scholarships depend largely on theories developed outside of the continent; the epistemologies for analysing the broader peace concept are disconnected from local contexts outlined above and that can contribute to discussions, debates, and ideas on how peace is constructed, interpreted, and communicated by communities in Africa.
