The Department of Political Science and Public Administration, Makerere University together with the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung (FES) will hold the first in a series of seven seminars for 2015 tomorrow, 12th March, in Board Room 2, 7th Floor in the Senate Building. The seminars will culminate in a public capstone event in October 2015.
Each seminar aims to bring together an invited group of approximately thirty people made up of policy makers, politicians, academics, independent researchers, and representatives of NGOs in an informal intellectual environment to discuss a range of issues that have a direct impact on Ugandans and national development.
In addition to providing a setting for intellectual debate and the sharing of ideas with non-academic groups working in politics, the seminars will be an opportunity to broaden the understanding of 'real world' politics and to foster potential collaborations.
The title of the first seminar is Same same but Different: Parties, Politics and Ideology in Uganda. It will start at 12.30pm to 3:00pm.
