Freedom, Self-Determination and Growth in Africa

The Africa Berlin International Conference (ABIC) Berlin, MediateamIT Educational Center (MTIT) Berlin, and Humboldt University (HU) Berlin, are pleased to announce a 5 day conference centered on Freedom, Self-determination and Growth in Africa. The basic assumptions around which the conference revolves is that the freedom to pursue good life, liberty, justice and protection in an atmosphere of equal opportunities is as natural as it is foundational to the growth, stability and health of a people, nation and continent. Africans fundamentally and culturally are compassionate, community oriented and creative. Through their compassion, they care one for another, through the elevation of the community before the individual, they seek collective advancement, growth and riches, and through their creativity, they are industrious and inventive. Only a free spirit can soar, can show empathy, can be creative and can be patriotic.

                        How can Africans assure individual, collective freedom while engaging in nation building?

                        How can Africans assure their dignity, conservation of their values, and ways of life, yet    achieve development across all social and economic spheres?

                        How do Africans sustain population growth without compromising on democratic values?

                        How do Africans ensure political, socio-economic transformation, enhance modernism and participate on the global economy without the cloak of neo-colonialism, invasive China, divisive religious profession, terrorism and corruption?

                        Where are the voices of freedom against bigotry and nepotism and cronyism?

                        Where is the institution against the need to pay a bribe before opening a business?
