The Dakar Declaration 2022
In October 2022, a second edition of the Conference was held in Dakar, Senegal, bringing together scholars, policy-makers and activists from Africa, Asia, Europe
and North America to seek alternatives to the global crises .
Participants of the Conference endorsed a new declaration emphasizing the critical role of solidarity with workers, the landless, peasants, women, climate activists and similar groups around the world.
A three-day conference on the topic of monetary sovereignty in Africa took place in Tunis, 2019.
With high profile speakers from around the world, that came to discuss this global matter, more than one hundred people were present at the opening of the first conference of its kind on the continent, which was also live-streamed online.
Super delighted to have collaborated with Jomo Kwame Sundaram, @ksjomo, on this piece: "Open Veins of #Africa Bleeding Heavily".
"Africa is not inherently ‘poor’. Rather, it has been impoverished by fraud and pillage leading to resource transfers abroad." https://www.ipsnews.net/2022/11/open-veins-africa-bleeding-heavily/

Economic and Monetary Sovereignty in 21st Century Africa
Economic and Monetary Sovereignty in 21st Century Africa traces the recent history of African monetary and financial dependencies, looking at the ways African nations are resisting colonial legacies. Using a comparative, multi-disciplinary approach, this book uncovers what went wrong after the Pan-African approaches that defined the early stages of independence, and how most African economies fell into the firm grip of the IMF, World Bank, and the EU’s strict neoliberal policies.
