Southern Africa beyond the West

Journal of Southern African Studies 1st Biennial Conference:

Southern Africa beyond the West:

Political, Economic & Cultural Relationships with the BRICS & the Global South

7-11 August 2015, Livingstone, Zambia

The primary aim of the conference will be to consider Southern Africa’s place in a future world in which the influence of Western powers is in relative decline. To this end it will focus on social, political and cultural aspects of the region’s relationships with other regions, including the lusophone world, China, India, Russia and their spheres of influence, as well as examples of South-South linkages, recognising at the outset that what are presented as new linkages have a long history.
