CEsA researcher Iolanda Évora is part of the Scientific Council of the 5th International Conference 2023 on diasporas and mobilities, taking place in Ivory Coast in November 2023


CEsA researcher and Professor at ISEG – Lisbon School of Economics and Management Iolanda Évora (CEsA/CSG/ISEG/ULisboa) participates as a member of the Scientific Council of the V Colloque International 2023 – Diasporas et Mobilités: Perspectives critiques actuelles. Afrique, Amérique-Caraïbe, Europe, Asia (XVè-XXIè siècles). The international conference will take place between November 29th and December 1st, 2023 at the Université Félix Houphouët-Boigny, in Abidjan, Ivory Coast. The event aims to explore the dynamics of human mobility on the one hand through the experience of Africans and people of African descent and, on the other hand, it aims to cross the themes of borders, circulations, human-environment interactions, memories, competence to act and interculturalities or creolizations not only on the African continent but also more widely in the Americas-Caribbean, without excluding Europe and Asia.

The event is organized by the Research and Latin American Studies Group (ED-SCALL/EA-PAMELCHID) at the Félix Houphouët-Boigny University (Ivory Coast), in collaboration with the Unesco Chair of Afro-Iberoamerican Studies at the University of Alcalá (Spain), the Research and Studies Group on Black People in Latin America (GRENAL-Eixo Línguas e Identidades/CRESEM) of the University of Perpignan (France), the Asociación de Estudios Americanos del Principado de Asturias, the University of Oviedo (Spain) and the Laboratory for the Study of African Migrations (LemAfriQ) based in Madrid (Spain).
