The 2nd African Social Movements Baraza has so far been an enlightening gathering of like-minded progressive social movement actors, who traveled from various parts of the continent to be part of this moment.

During a vibrant morning registration process, comrades enjoyed reconnecting with each other in-person, which for many was the first time since the resumption of international travel. The facilitator for the convening is Nizenande Machi, a seasoned conversation guider who has kept the flames of inspiration alive for the participants.

Le Forum mondial sur les communautés victimes de discrimination au travail et dans l'ascendance (GFoD - pour son sigle en anglais) est le mécanisme de plaidoyer mondial des communautés victimes de discrimination au travail et dans l'ascendance (CDWD - pour son sigle en anglais). Plus de 260 millions de personnes à travers le monde sont discriminées sur la base du travail et de l'ascendance et sont plus communément appelées Dalits, Roma-Sinti, Quilombola, Burakumin, Oru, parmi beaucoup d'autres noms. La discrimination sur le travail et l'ascendance (DWD - pour son sigle en anglais) est un phénomène mondial qui manque de reconnaissance publique et les communautés affectées sont parmi les personnes les plus marginalisées et exclues.

 After ten years of hosting the Pan-African Conference (PAC) on Illicit Financial Flows and Taxation, this year, Tax Justice Network Africa (TJNA) is excited to co-host its 10th PAC alongside the African Tax Administration Forum (ATAF). Over the years, TJNA and ATAF have advocated for pro-poor tax policies and systems that curb leakages and optimise domestic resource mobilisation on the continent. The uncertainty of the current global economy has made this mission more critical than ever. As such, in light of the present context, the 2022 PAC will be held under the theme ‘Tax Justice Amid Multiple Crises.’ And in the spirit and tradition of the PAC, the two lead institutions will collaborate with other organisations to deliver a successful 10th PAC.

The main objective of this year’s PAC conference is, therefore, to explore ways to mitigate the impact of global external shocks on the continent through tackling illicit financial flows and undertaking progressive domestic resource mobilisation.

Date: October 27th 2022 

TrustAfrica, in partnership with Solidaridad, will convene a regional multistakeholder platform on October 27th 2022 in Blantyre, Malawi, to deliberate on inclusive policies that will help to promote sustainability in the tea value chain in Africa.

Venue: Sheraton Hotel in Pretoria, South Africa  

Date:  2-4 November 2022 

The Institute for Pan-African Thought and Conversation (IPATC), based at the University of Johannesburg (UJ), TrustAfrica and the Council for the Development of Social Science Research in Africa (CODESRIA), are jointly organizing a continental symposium on the theme: “The African Union at 20: Progress, Problems and Prospects”.

The symposium will be held at the Sheraton Hotel in Pretoria, South Africa on 2-4 November 2022. The symposium is part and parcel of the commemoration of the 20th Anniversary of the African Union (AU). The AU was officially founded and launched on 9 July 2002 in Durban, South Africa. The Union took over the mantle for the pursuit of continental unity and integration from the Organisation of African Unity (OAU) which had existed since 1963. Both the OAU and AU are key institutional architectures and historical landmarks for the advancement of Pan-Africanism and African Renaissance, especially from the perspective of state-driven continental integration. 

 

Ce mardi 20 septembre 2022, TrustAfrica a organisé un atelier d’échange sur la problématique de la déforestation et le travail des jeunes. L’atelier, qui s’est tenu en Côte D’ivoire, a permis d’outiller une vingtaine d’acteurs du secteur du Cacao et du palmier à huile. Cet atelier a permis l’amélioration des connaissances des participants sur le danger que représente le travail des enfants et la nouvelle loi forestière en vertu de l'article 27 sur la propriété des arbres.
