Description

Human society will be incomplete if some segments are non-existent. Minority groups are as important as any other group. Their security should be a matter of priority for governments. The recent manhunt for albinos that has plagued some regions of the African continent is just an indication of the urgency for the need of an affirmative action in the policies of African governments. Like the failed attempt to exterminate the Tutsi minority in Rwanda in 1994, the Albino question is a matter of urgency today. This conference seeks to plunge researchers, civil rights activists, policymakers, documentary filmmakers, politicians, albinos, students and a wide range of professionals across the board to brainstorm and propose policies to reverse this reality. The conference will also seek to illuminate the role of superstition in contemporary African politics and the role of voodoo diviners in African leadership structure.
