DAKAR, 2023


Les Ateliers de la Pensée & Global Africa


Since 2018, Les Ateliers de la Pensée de Dakar (ADLP) in association with the Consortium des Instituts pour les Humanités (CHCI) have set up a Doctoral School whose primary objective is to contribute to the empirical, methodological and theoretical imagination renewal in the study of Africa and, more generally, the dynamics of transformation in contexts of instability and uncertainty.

This 2024 edition will be held in partnership with the Global Africa program, supported by Université Gaston Berger (Senegal), IRD, UIR and LASDEL. Global Africa's Junior Researchers’ Institute (JRI) has been set up to help young African researchers integrate into scientific communities in the social sciences, thereby enabling them to play an active role in shaping the world's knowledge. The Junior Researchers’ Institute is an essential component of the Global Africa project.

In particular, the School aims to introduce participants to contemporary transnational debates on new knowledge and global issues, from a continental and diasporic African perspective.

The work resulting from the joint ADLP & Doctoral School will be the subject of a special issue to be published in March 2025 in Global Africa.
