OCTOBER 14, 2022 | PRESENTIAL and ONLINE.
In recent decades Guinea Bissau has been identified as one case of state fragility in Africa, plagued by pervasive neopatrimonialism with an outlook aggravated by the activity of narcotraffic criminal networks.
This seminar aims at taking stock of the state of the art of the explanations and understanding of the political instability in Guinea-Bissau. We welcome research from different disciplinary perspectives and levels of analysis. Although grounded in political science we welcome research from an economic, historical, geographic, social or other perspective. Also, we are interested in covering dynamics of (in)stability at the systemic/regional level, the state level and the sub-state or individual level.
A special issue of JANUS.NET, e-journal of International Relations (SCOPUS Q4) will publish a selection of the papers presented.
The seminar will be held in Portuguese and English in a hybrid format at OBSERVARE/Universidade Autónoma de Lisboa (UAL) in Lisbon, Portugal, on the 14th of October 2022. Presentations of papers can be done either on-site or online.
