Call for Proposals: Africa’s ‘New Cities’. A policy trend or an urban solution?

Selected candidates will present their papers during the upcoming "Governing Africa’s Urban Transitions" conference

The French Institute of International Relations, (Ifri) the Friedrich Ebert Foundation (FES), and Charter Cities Institute (CCI) co-organize the annual conference “Governing Africa’s Urban Transitions”, coordinated by Ifri. The event is dedicated to the topic of building “new” infrastructures, neighborhoods, and entirely new cities, which has received a great deal of attention from researchers, media, and civil society. It will bring together scholars, policy and decision-makers, as well as experts from the private sector to share and discuss data, results, and future visions for the type of urban infrastructure needed to respond to urban growth patterns in Sub-Saharan Africa.
