The international criminal justice program officer at TrustAfrica hopes to start including more programs in North African countries after attending a session at Salzburg Global.

Jeanne Elone attended the session, 'Getting Transition Right: A Rights-based Approach towards Diversity & Inclusivity’ to focus on four key countries in the midst of transition in the Middle East and North Africa region.

Ms Elone, who has coordinated research on North Africa, examining the role of civil society in the political transformations that shook the region in 2011, attended and participated at the session held in co-operation with the  Arab Human Rights Fund.

Discussions centered on Egypt, Tunisia, Libya, and Yemen, as participants looked at ways to improve diversity and inclusion in the region.

Ms Elone has lived in Senegal, Cameroon, Burkina Faso, France, and the United States, working on a range of issues from political parties and democratization to human rights and development finance.

In an extended Q&A with Salzburg Global, she reviews what she's been able to take away from the session, the parallels she's been able to draw with events in sub-Saharan Africa, and the extent of TrustAfrica's work in the continent.

An all-Africa higher education summit is to be held next year, bringing together stakeholders from across the continent to develop a charter and programme of action aimed at revitalising the sector. Another goal will be to build an advocacy alliance for higher education.
TrustAfrica and Amalion publishing are proud to launch the latest addition to the growing cadre of information on the field of African Philanthropy.  The new book, Giving to Help, Helping to Give: The Context and Politics of African Philanthropy asks the question ‘When referring to ‘philanthropy’ in Africa, what comes to mind?’  While the West may have been first to institutionalize, legalize and define the terms of philanthropy, the practice of philanthropy has existed much, much longer in Africa.  Sixteen chapters cover the four regions of Africa and each chapter provides a snapshot of philanthropy within a contextual, analytical, political and, at times, philosophical framework by noted researchers and practitioners from around the continent.
