Nordic Africa Days 2007

Hisayo and Jukka participated in Nordic Africa Days 2007 which was very nicely hosted by the Nordic Africa Institute situated in Uppsala. Many scholars had gathered from all over the world to discuss Africa issues.

We (Hisayo and Jukka) were joining the workshop: "Reconsidering Urban Politics in Africa: Urban Citizens between the Global and the Local", in which we presented a paper: "Human Rights-Based Approach to Disability in Development in Uganda: A Way to Fill the
Gap between Political and Social Spaces?
". Here is a picture of all the great people in our workshop....Thank you all!
