Roundtable: No Issues, no Spark? The Namibian Elections November 2019 and beyond
November 13 @ 17:15 - 19:00
This roundtable seminar with Job Amupanda, Lesley Blaauw & Andre du Pisani (University of Namibia) is part of the Namibian and Southern African Studies Research Colloquium.
The Namibian presidential and parliamentarian elections on 27 November 2019 seem to generate little interest amongst the electorate. Are there no issues at stake, has the social justice and social welfare landscape improved to the benefit of many? In this seminar we join land activist and political scientist Job Amupanda, political studies professor Lesley Blaauw and veteran political analyst Andre du Pisani, all from the University of Namibia, in an open discussion on the forthcoming elections. Their presence in Basel is a timely opportunity to enhance our understanding and discuss developments beyond the elections and of more paradigmatic relevance for the whole of southern Africa.
