International conference on “the stakes of the opposition in Africa”

Saturday, November 4, 2017 in Paris

The Mandela Institute is organizing an International Conference on “The Challenges of the Opposition in Africa”, on November 4, 2017 in Paris. Its aim is to reflect, with political actors and civil society, on a peaceful democratic governance approach in order to avoid post-electoral conflicts that are very damaging to Africa’s development. It is a constructive dialogue between the Power, the Opposition and the Civil Society on the consolidation of democratic institutions and the construction of a just society.

The Mandela Institute is part of the fight for peace in Africa. It is in this context that it invites political actors (power and opposition) and those of civil society to reflect on the consolidation of democratic institutions in Africa. The aim is to organize free, transparent, credible and peaceful elections to prevent Africa from delaying the development process by the endless destruction / reconstruction game. To this end, the Mandela Institute stresses that elections should no longer be opportunities for violence and destruction of countries.

Thus, it strongly encourages influential actors from the Hemisphere to actively participate in this Conference on November 4, 2017, to present their vision of building democratic, strong and prosperous nations.
