We would like to invite you to our two-day online conference on “Religions as Bridge Builders or Roadblocks in Elections in East Africa and the Horn” on 19th-20th May 2022. This is the fourth Tangaza Annual Conference on Sustainable Peace and Security in Africa (TACSPA 4) and it is organized by the Institute for Interreligious Dialogue and Islamic Studies (IRDIS) in partnership with the Institute of Social Transformation (IST), AGIAMONDO and the Civil Peace Service, Germany.

What the conference is about:

Elections have contributed to advance political participation and should ensure the fulfilling of voters’ aspirations and the development of the society at large. However, the political violence experienced in the East and Horn of Africa, and increasingly all over the continent, demonstrates that elections and transition processes afterwards are also a cause of instability and economic setback. But electoral processes cannot be analysed without including the role of Religions, which are omnipresent in the region. Their role is often ambivalent, since Religions and Politics are often intertwined, while on the other side, Religions increasingly advocate for human rights and against autocratic regimes. Hence, discussing the role of Religions as Bridge Builders or Roadblocks from different angles and incorporating views from practitioners and scholars from different fields, will be the core of this conference.
