Second Young Scholars Conference on Structural Change and Industrial Policy in Africa
University of Johannesburg and Young Scholars Initiative
21-22 June 2022
About the Conference
The Second Young Scholars Conference on Structural Change and Industrial Policy in Africa presents papers from young scholars whose work engages with these themes, challenges existing paradigms on structural transformation in Africa and seeks innovative ways for advancing our understanding of functional industrial policy across the continent. We especially encourage research that takes a pluralist perspective. The purpose of this conference is to contribute to scholarship on structural change and industrial development and policy in Africa, specifically among young scholars.
Senior international scholars will act as discussants on the papers to provide feedback on presented papers. The conference will be held virtually. Attendance without presentation of papers is welcome. Certificates of attendance/presentation will be provided on request.
The conference opens with a keynote address from Dr Adeyemi Dipeolu (Special Advisor to the President for Economic Matters in the Office of the Vice-President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria) and closes with a panel discussion between distinguished senior scholars on structural change and development in Africa.
