REPOA is proud to announce a call for papers and posters for the 24th Annual Research Workshop (ARW24).
ARW24 invites academicians, policy practitioners, policy makers, business community, civil society and other stakeholders to send original research papers and posters. The workshop will be held from 10th – 11th April 2019 in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania under the theme “Local Economic Development: Unpacking potentials for accelerated transformation of
Tanzania”. ARW24 aims to provoke and promote policy dialogue and research on Local Economic Development (LED) as a viable policy strategy in the transformation of Tanzania’s economy. ARW24 seeks to spotlight LED as a necessary process in leveraging Tanzania’s comparative advantages; global value chains and options for strategic linkages to enhance competitiveness in agriculture, industries, and other sectors; and how local authorities can
promote local economic growth and create employment opportunities. This is the fourth consecutive workshop that closely analyses key features of Tanzania’s current five-year development plan 2016/17 – 2020/21, offering a timely review of its implementation and reminding all stakeholders to assess their contribution towards meeting its objectives. The theme for this year’s workshop is interdisciplinary in nature and broad enough to cover a range of disciplinary areas such as sociology, international relations, economics, technology, political science, development studies and gender studies, to name a few. Presenters may
provide theoretical discourses or empirical case studies revolving around the theme. Please take note of the following relevant timeline:
Deadline for Submission of abstracts: 28th January 2019, (responded by 4th February 2019)
Deadline for Submission of papers: 11th March 2019
