Argument

The current crises in the Central Africa and the Great Lakes sub-regions have caused the movement of persons in an unprecedented scale. The most recent case studies of insecurity in these sub-regions are quite revealing on the impact of insecurity and migration in Central Africa, in human societies and particularly on women and youths.

As a result, the Management of Social Transformations Programme (MOST) of UNESCO is organizing a forum to enable the understanding of the phenomena of insecurity and migration in the Central African sub-region as well as their effects on the vulnerable population, women and youths.

The Forum's scientific debates shall focus on four sub-themes: refugees and time codes; youths and social change; climatic conditions and women empowerment; food insecurity and an upsurge in criminality.

The scientific committee of the MOST Ministerial Forum calls for papers under the following sub-themes:

  • Sub-theme 1: Refugees: Time and codes
  • Sub- theme 2: Young People and Social Change
  • Sub-theme 3: Climatic Conditions and Women Empowerment
  • Sub-theme 4: Food Insecurity and an Upsurge in Criminality

Submission guidelines

Proposed abstracts in English or French are expected latest July 30th 2016.

Authors are expected to send in their power point presentations and complete papers to the addresses below latest 15th September 2015.
