The meeting has two overarching objectives:

  • an exchange of evidence and ideas from completed research on the economic and political conditions for achieving economic transformation and inclusive development in Africa;
  • an assessment of how to achieve better research-policy linkages on transformation and inclusion, with particular reference to productive employment and social protection.

The seminar is co-hosted by three entities: the Developmental Regimes Africa project led by the Overseas Development Institute with the University of Leiden; the Knowledge Platform on Development Policies sponsored by the Government of the Netherlands with a network of African policy research institutes; and the Knowledge Delivery pillar and Capacity Development Division of the UN Economic Commission for Africa. The aim is to bring together and stimulate a forward-looking debate among representatives of Africa’s major policy knowledge networks, international agencies based in Africa, distinguished researchers and policy thinkers, and influential business leaders and government advisers in the region.
