Second International Conference on Democratic Governance in Africa, Asia, and the Middle East - Call for proposals

Conference Theme : Issues, Constraints, and Opportunities in Democratic Governance

The purpose of this conference is to bring together an international group of scholars and practitioners from diverse disciplines (economics, sociology, public administration, political economy, business, anthropology, law, political science, information technology, journalism, international relation, education, public heath, etc.) to collectively explore the multiple facets of the problems and emerging opportunities of democratic governance around the world.

Interested scholars and practitioners in economic development and democratic governance are invited to share their experiences, discuss their perspectives, and present concrete proposals to help advance democratic governance in developing nations. More specifically, participants of the conference are encouraged to present papers and participate in group discussions on developing strategies for building sustainable democratic governance practices in developing countries. Since Rwanda is the host country, presentations on the problems of post-conflict societies are particularly welcome.

The conference program committee welcomes proposals for high-quality conceptual papers, qualitative and quantitative empirical research papers, and policy- and practice-oriented papers. In addition to individual paper proposals, the committee encourages the submission of complete panels consisting of no more than three papers. Panel submissions should bring together complementary papers that address similar research questions or topics. Panel proposals should provide information on the overall theme of the panel and indicate how each of the proposed papers connects to the panel’s theme.

Proposals from individuals at all stages of their careers are welcome. Proposals by graduate students are particularly encouraged and will be evaluated separately by the program committee.
The deadline for submission of proposals is December 15, 2013. Proposals will be evaluated by the conference program committee and proposers will be notified of the committee’s decisions via email by January 15, 2014.
