50 Years of African In-Dependences - A (self-)critical Evaluation

With its chosen theme for 2010 – “50 years of African In-dependences – a (self) critical evaluation”, AfricAvenir International e.V. commemorates two anniversaries: the 50th Anniversary, as celebrated by 17 African countries this year, of obtaining sovereignty and independence; and the 125th Anniversary of the so-called Congo-Conference, initiated by Bismarck in Berlin, which formalised Europe’s colonisation of Africa. An historical line will be drawn between the European battles to conquer Africa and the call for formal African independences in the late 1950s until the 1990s. The process of economical, social and cultural decolonisation, which continues to this day, as well as the disappointments following the in-dependences, will also be put up for discussion. To this end, we will organise lectures and workshops, film screenings, a theater play and edit a publication.
