As Angola's long civil war has ended and the most immediate reconstruction priorities are being met, the country faces an historical opportunity to convert its vast resource wealth into welfare for its people. 

Yet five years into the peace, considerable challenges prevail. The seminar invites researchers, policy makers and civil society representatives from Norway, Angola and beyond to reflect on Angola's transition and how the country can set itself on a path towards fairer resource management.

We aim to:

  • Provide a forum for discussion of challenges and opportunities in relation to Angola
  • Present recent CMI and other research on Angola
  • Present the programme for CMI-CEIC research cooperation for 2008-2010
