Symposium on Cultural Diplomacy in the African Union
“African Perspectives: An African Vision for Positive Developments in Africa”
(Berlin; June 26th – 28th, 2013)
www.au-culturaldiplomacy-conference.org

This unprecedented gathering will seek to highlight Africa´s self-attained achievements with regards to its standing in the international community as well as it´s increasing emancipation from the often assumed dependency on the Western world. The focus will be on the role and successes of the African Union as an intergovernmental regional organization seeking to combat political, social and economic inequalities. Past achievements will be considered while simultaneously accenting the future challenges the AU faces.

Symposium Agenda
Multidimensional in focus, the conference will revolve around three main themes. Beginning with “the rise of corporate Africa”, the positive impact of enterprise on development throughout the continent will be accented. The following theme,“African solutions for African challenges (human development)” will be dedicated to the overlapping issues of education, the eradication of poverty and the empowerment of women. The final topic “community development through arts, culture and sports” will exemplify the power exerted by cultural diplomacy on the furthering of community development.

It will be demonstrated that the application of cultural diplomacy is pervasive within the African Union´s activities, as it has charged itself with the task of uniting highly differentiated cultures within Africa with the aim of achieving ´greater unity and solidarity between the African countries and the peoples of Africa´.

Cultural Diplomacy will be shown to support and solidify such efforts.

Symposium Speakers
Speakers during the conference will include leading figures and experts from civil society, international politics, academia, diplomacy, civil society and the private sector. These speakers will include a number of individuals from the ICD Advisory Board.

Symposium Participants
The conference is open to applications from governmental and diplomatic officials, civil society practitioners, young professionals, students and scholars, private sector representatives, journalists, and other interested stakeholders from across the world.

Symposium Locations
Based in Berlin, the conference will be hosted at a number of important political, historic, and cultural locations across the city.

Certificate of Attendance
All Symposium participants will be awarded an official Certificate of Attendance upon completion of the program, which will provide details of the speakers who took part in the event, and list the topics which were discussed. Each certificate will be signed by members of the ICD Advisory Board.
