50 Years of Development in Sub-Saharan Africa - The Experience of Tanzania

50 Years of Development in Sub-Saharan Africa - The Experience of Tanzania

CONFERENCE: The objective of the conference is to investigate the progress of the United Republic of Tanzania over the fifty years since the creation of the Union and to consider its prospects for the future in the context of renewed optimism about both economic performance and cooperation between national governments in Sub-Saharan Africa.

29-30 May 2014 | University of Bradford, UK

In the past thirty years, in common with a number of Sub-Saharan African countries, Tanzania has experienced a period of painful adjustment followed by relatively rapid and stable economic growth.

At times Tanzania has been relatively influential in its approach to development and it is now one of the resurgent African economies that are contributing to this optimism. 

However the extent of progress on poverty reduction is open to question. 

Bradford Centre for International Development (BCID) has been actively involved in collaboration with Tanzanian institutions, particularly Mzumbe University, and this conference is a reflection of that co-operative relationship.

Although the focus of the conference is on Tanzania the organizer also will welcome comparative studies that relate the experience of Tanzania to relevant experiences elsewhere.

Deadline for abstracts (300 words) is 31 March
