Meeting Description:

The 2010s have witnessed the consolidation of most African states and institutions. However, fifty years after the foundation of the Organization of African Unity in 1963, the international panorama and Africa’s position in it have changed considerably. The world’s geopolitical and economic configuration has evolved, with new actors appearing on an increasingly globalized scene. Under these conditions and given its own trajectory, the current challenges that Africa faces include the promotion of peace and security, human rights, democratic institutions and particularly the integration and socioeconomic development of Africans, as stated by the OUA’s successor, the African Union. ECAS 2013 will discuss three aspects of this new configuration and its effects on African societies: political challenges, economic and development changes and social creativity. The conference’s main focus will be the contemporary period, while taking into account the historical dimension of these issues.

Call for Papers:

The call for papers is now open and will close on 16 January 2013.

Please browse the list of accepted panels and make your proposal to an appropriate panel. On the panel page, beneath the long abstract you will find a link stating ‘Propose a paper’. Click that to access the online form.

All proposals must be made via the bespoke online facility that ECAS2013 is using to handle all proposals. Proposals should not be sent by email. Convenors wishing to present in their own panel should also use the online form to enter their proposal.

Proposals should consist of a paper title, a (very) short abstract of less than 300 characters, and an abstract of 250 words. The proposal may also state the audio-visual requirements you have for your presentation.

On submission of the proposal, you should be taken to a screen stating that your submission was completed successfully. If not then you need to try again. On completion the convenors will be sent an automated email alerting them to your proposal. You will also be sent such an email. If you do not receive this email, please first check the log-in environment (click log-in above) to see if your proposal is there. If it is, it simply means your confirmation email got spammed/lost; and if it is not, it means you need to re-submit, as the process went wrong somewhere!

Proposals will be marked as pending until the Call for Papers closes, and convenors are asked to make decisions. They will then be marked as accepted or rejected; and the panel convenors will inform you of their decisions.
