This conference invites researchers working on deepened (formal) economic relationships, both within Africa and with external partners, to present their original research. Submitted papers need to show a clear link to Africa’s regional or global integration efforts and experiences. We welcome policy-relevant quantitative and qualitative approaches and encourage particularly young researchers and those from the Global South to submit their contributions.

Conference contributions will be considered for submission to a Special Issue to appear in the Review of World Economics.

 

We have extended the deadline for submission of extended abstracts (600-1000 words) until 15 May 2022. Submissions and related inquiries should be directed exclusively to socioeconomic@die-gdi.de. In both cases, please use “Africa Conference 2022” in the subject line.

The conference is jointly organized by the German Development Institute (DIE) and the Kiel Institute for the World Economy (IfW). Depending on the COVID-19 situation, the conference will be held either face-to-face in Bonn (Germany), as a hybrid event or fully virtually.

Areas of interest include (but are not limited to) the linkage of Africa’s regional and global integration with:

  • Trade, including regional and global value chain (GVC) integration
  • Foreign Direct Investment
  • Structural transformation & (de-)industrialization
  • Digitalization
