Number of visits: 3052

On March 2, 2010, a CODESRIA delegation composed of Dr. Ebrima Sall, CODESRIA Executive Secretary and Olivier Sagna, Head of CODICE, paid a courtesy visit to the Third World Forum (TWF) headed by Professor Samir Amin. On the menu of the discussions that took place with Bernard-Founou Tchuigoua also in attendance, Research Director at TWF, was the particular question of the Comparative Research Network on "Responses from the South and the challenges of the Great Depression underway, with special attention to the responses of Africa", launched by TWF and CODESRIA earlier this year, and strengthening collaboration between CODESRIA and TWF around issues such as the African Renaissance, African Alternatives in development, the next World Social Forum (Dakar 2011) and the role of African intellectuals in the social transformation of the continent. TWF has donated the complete collection of social science journals to CODICE from its documentation centre.
