Theme: Tribute to Professors Samir Amin and Thandika Mkandawire
Location: Virtual session via Zoom
August 12, 2021 marks the third anniversary of the death of Prof. Samir Amin, an eminent thinker and organic intellectual, who devoted his entire life to the struggle against capitalist oppression and imperialist domination. He was a giant in thought and action, who was part of all the struggles for the emancipation of the peoples of Africa and the world.
He put his immense knowledge and talent at the service of this struggle. On the theoretical level, he made a masterly contribution to the deconstruction of the concepts of "development" and "underdevelopment" propagated by neoclassical economic theory.
Professor Samir Amin would certainly have seen in the coronavirus pandemic a new illustration of the implosion of monopoly capitalism, which has become an obsolete system and a danger for the survival of humanity.
We associate with this tribute that of another eminent thinker who passed away in 2020 and who was very close to him. It is Professor Thandika Mkandawire, former Executive Secretary of CODESRIA, a position he held on the recommendation of Professor Samir Amin. A great intellectual complicity and a deep friendship bound these two eminent thinkers.
We hope that many of you will be there, in Senegal and outside of Senegal, to honor the memories of these two illustrious departed, whose ideas and exceptional careers continue to be an inexhaustible source of inspiration for current and future struggles.
