The Third Voice of Social Sciences (VSS) International Conference

The college of Social Sciences of the University of Dar es Salaam would like to inform major stakeholders of the university and the general public that the third Voice of Social Sciences (VSS) International Conference will take place from 24th to 25th November, 2016 at UDSM Nkrumah Hall. This year’s conference theme: ‘Industrialization and Social Transformation’ addresses the puzzle that about five decades of independence and implementation of industrialization strategies, the industrial base in many  African countries has relatively remained weak and in some cases non-existing. While previous industrialized countries are no longer centres of manufacturing, the emergence of China, Korea and other South East Asian countries leading in the manufacturing sector raises a number of questions, such as, whether other developing countries should follow the same path; or how industrialization has/is/will and should be for a positive social transformation.

International Conference on Natural Resources Accounting and Finance

Main Theme: Enhancing Business Environment for Sustainable Development of the Extractive Industry

For many years, extractive industries have been key contributors to the rapid growth of both developing and developed economies. Challenges and opportunities arising from this sector have been issues of major concern for academics, practitioners and policy makers. Different initiatives have been put in place to address the challenges and exploit opportunities for the sustainable development of the industry. In this year, the International Conference on Natural Resources Accounting and Finance (ICNRAF) seeks to debate on issues pertaining to business environment which have a direct contribution to the development of the extractive industries. This year’s chapter is the third in the annual series of the international conference on natural resources, ICNRAF. The objective of the conference is to bring together academics, practitioners and policymakers under one roof to discuss issues of importance in the management of the natural resources. Previous chapters had focused on the opportunities and challenges affecting the industry, it is now the right time to look at the business environment and how it can be enhanced to make positive contributions to the sector. This year’s chapter therefore, has decided to focus on the main theme of “Enhancing Business Environment for Sustainable Development of the Extractive Industry”.

Third Voice of Social Sciences International Conference

THEME: INDUSTRIALIZATION AND SOCIAL TRANSFORMATION: WHAT IS THE ROLE OF SOCIAL SCIENCES?

Many developing countries embarked on industrialization strategies immediately after independence. However, five decades down the development trail, the industrial base in these countries has relatively remained weak and in some cases non-existing. As a result, these countries continue to export raw materials with low value addition; to import manufactured goods from outside at high costs; to experience low employment; low income; and no linkages to; and/or the decline in the agricultural sector which employs most of the population of these countries. To date, however, there is a turn to industrialization outlined in many of the development visions of these countries. While previous industrialized countries are no longer centres of manufacturing, the emergence of China, Korea and other South East Asian countries leading in  the manufacturing sector raises a number of questions, such as, whether other developing countries should follow the same path; or how industrialization has/is/will and should be for a positive social transformation.
