Please Register on Zoom https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_AXaKUsQmQUWDVaiWAu5AwQ
This webinar brings together scholars, practitioners, and activists from across West Africa to reflect on the contemporary politics of democracy in the region. We focus in particular on presidential third terms, popular protests, and human rights. Cutting across these themes we have a central concern with the dynamics of power, voice, and knowledge which characterise the West African political space.

Warwick Launches First SDG Report
On Friday Sept. 25, 2020 the 5th Anniversary of the creation of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), WICID joined Warwick IGSD and other colleagues in launching the Warwick SDG Report.
Our colleagues at Warwick IGSD write,
"At the University of Warwick, we prioritise a thoughtful, critical and substantial engagement with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Our aim is that by 2030, Warwick will be one of the world’s exceptional universities, helping to transform our region, country and world for the collective good. Our strategy thus combines a commitment to cutting edge, internationally relevant work, with an ethical commitment to positive impact in the world. Through building inclusive communities of research, teaching, learning and practice we believe that we can help to shape and further the sustainable development agenda. This is a contribution but also a commitment to playing our role as a Higher Education Institution."
