This meeting aims to bring together representatives of the most prominent African think tanks with specialists in Sub-Saharan Africa from the major Spanish think tanks, so as to generate and enhance the interaction between them. In order to strengthen this link, the invitation is extended to European think tanks that have already previously collaborated with the Spanish ones and that have strong working lines around Sub-Saharan Africa.
The proposal of organising a 1st Meeting of Africa-Spain Think Tanks goes in the line with Casa África’s work to generate new Hispanic-African networks.
The meeting will be held over two days. The first day is to be carried out internally, where each one of the think tanks shall set out their lines of work and interests in seeking potential work synergies. The second will be open to the public and will consist of two major topics set out by the African representatives: the transformation of the armed conflict and its response; and the situation and prospects regarding youth and development.
