Angola-Norway the perfect partnership?
From the 18th to the 23rd of September 2014 the Norwegian Council for Africa and the Chr. Michelsen Institute hosted a series of events on various topics related to Angola – including author talks in Stavanger, Bergen and Oslo with the leading Angolan novelist Jose Eduardo Agualusa, a pub debate at the Kulturhuset in Oslo, a seminar at Stortinget (the Norwegian Parliament) and a full day conference at KS Agenda in Oslo on the 23rd of September.
The Angola days 2014 looked at social and political developments in Angola and raised debates about Norwegian-Angolan relations. With close to 300 visitors at the events, several media articles, and meetings between Angolan civil society, Norwegian journalists, decision makers and other stakeholders, we hope that the events have contributed to raising awareness and knowledge about Angola in Norway.
In this report we have collected and edited all ten speeches held at the full day conference. We have also made an attempt at summarizing some messages and recommendations the organisers took away from the events.
