    A MULTI-STAKEHOLDER PLATFORM FOR RESEARCHERS AND PRACTITIONERS

    How can Africa and Europe move forward together? African economies face a number of critical challenges (e.g. limited employment opportunities, low quality of education), but also offer many opportunities (e.g. young and motivated workforce, high entrepreneurial activity). Unfortunately, most indicators suggest that large parts of Africa are not on track to address the critical challenges and leverage the opportunities. Africa’s and Europe’s challenges are linked in multiple ways. Accordingly, the conference theme is that Africa and Europe can move forward together by jointly developing and using evidence-based solutions. Evidence-based solutions play an increasingly prominent role in “project-based” development cooperation. Yet, there is still a major knowing-doing gap. Further, policy-relevant evidence is often scarce in key areas, including employment creation, migration, trade, and investment policies.  

    Leuphana University of Lueneburg and the GIGA German Institute of Global and Area Studies invite experts from academia and practice to discuss current approaches, policies and interventions for African development. The conference fosters the exchange of ideas between science and practice to close the knowing-doing gap and to contribute to a more rigorous implementation of evidence-based solutions in a wider range of areas. The aim is to create an interdisciplinary platform to address the challenges of African development and European development cooperation by applying the logic of evidence-based management and policy.
