“Regionalising African civil societies: Lessons, opportunities and constraints” Workshop in Uppsala, Sweden
The workshop, held in Uppsala in October 2014, gathered participants from African NGOs and researchers working on regionalisation and civil society issues. This provided a unique opportunity to engage in conversations about research and practice. During the two days, we moved from an initial emphasis on the role of civil society
in regional integration and the regionalisation of civil society itself, to questioning the idea of the region
as a territory, as a space for political action, for economic activities and for identity and belonging.
GovInn Andreas Godsäter was one of the keynote speakers at the event.
