If you are submitting a paper abstract and you would like your paper to be included in one of the above Special Sessions, please tell us which session when you submit your abstract.
The conference organizers cannot sponsor or fund presenters or delegates, who are expected to pay for their travel, food and stay during the conference. There will be no registration fee for the conference.
The conference is organized by the Finnish Academy-funded project “Urban Renewal and Income-Generating Spaces for Youth and Women in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia” led by Prof. Laura Stark, Dept. of History and Ethnology, University of Jyväskylä. Our co-organizer is the Nordic Africa Institute in Uppsala, Sweden.
