Africa and the New World Order-Conf Call for Papers



First Annual International Interdisciplinary Conference, to be held at Kisii University, July 30 to August 2, 2014, Kisii, Kenya

General conference theme: Africa and the New World Order

Conference venue: Kisii University, Main Campus, Kisii Town, Kenya

The rise of China and India as global economic powers has created new development dynamics, synergies and imperatives for Africa. Many African countries are looking for new global partners in order to create and fashion better development opportunities for their people.

There is increasing realization that the world is a global village where influences move back and forth in rapid succession between cultures, so that it is often not easy to tell the original from the duplicate. The Kisii University would like to take this opportunity to invite scholars, researchers, academics and students in Africa and elsewhere to submit papers on Africa and the New World Order to bring to the forefront new perspectives that address how Africa has responded to the forces of globalization, especially in the rise
of China and India.
