Challenging Orthodoxies in Economic Thinking in Africa

Poster for the event - Challenging orthodoxies in economic thinking in Africa

Hosted in collaboration with TrustAfrica in Dakar, Senegal from 2 to 4 September 2019, the Challenging Orthodoxies in Economic Thinking in Africa convening brought together African academics, scholars and activists to engage, as part of an ongoing process, on new forms of economic thinking, including interrogating existing economic orthodoxies. The convening was an opportunity to contribute towards laying the basis for new forms of knowledge production that have the potential to change the trajectory of development in Africa.
