Call for Papers: YALJOD Founders’ Series 2021 ($250 Prize)

The Young African Leaders Forum, in partnership with the African Governance Architecture (AGA) of the African Union, invites interested Africans to submit research articles for publication in the first edition of its Young African Leaders Journal of Development (YALJOD) Founders’ Series. This edition of our journal is aimed at amplifying and deducing lessons from the ceaseless campaigns by African nationalists for African solidarity and for the liberation of the continent from colonial rule. One of their greatest achievements was to win the right of black people in Africa to determine their own destiny. They pursued freedom and Pan-Africanism regardless of the life-threatening conditions and consequences that prevailed at the time.
