Working Seminar, Lisbon, Portugal
«Legacies of Conflict, Decolonisation and the Cold War»
28/29 May 2010


The recent history of Southern Africa has enormous importance for the contemporary world, in terms of both inter and intra state relations, and the linkages/ruptures between African states and movements. Building upon a successful conference in May 2009 which brought together both established and new scholars in the field of Southern African studies in the 1970s and 1980s, LSE IDEAS and the Portuguese Institute of International Affairs (IPRI) are organizing a second working seminar in Lisbon on 28/29th May 2010. This meeting will address the legacies of decolonization, conflict and the Cold War for contemporary Africa. The organizers invite the submission of abstracts (250-300 words maximum) on the political, diplomatic, military, ideological and social legacies of the Cold War era on African states and societies, and new perspectives on the inheritance of the struggle between nationalist liberation and white minority rule, external actors and agencies.

The conference organizers particularly welcome submissions on the following topics

-       international dimension of regional transitions

-       legacies of decolonisation and Cold War

-       challenges for nationalist movements as parties of government

-       post Cold War transitions: violence and civil war

-       transitional justice and reconciliation

-       war and memory

-       returning European migrations

-       continuities/ruptures of regional and international relations

-       the role of education and the media

Please send submissions to Dr Sue Onslow, Head of the Southern Africa Programme at LSE IDEAS, London School of Economics (Este endereço de email está protegido contra piratas.
