As part of the celebration activities marking its tenth anniversary, EISA launched its Annual Continental Symposia in Johannesburg from 8-10 November 2006; the theme for the First Symposium was Challenges for Democratic Governance and Human Development in Africa.
The Symposium attracted the participation of about 500 scholars, policy makers, political parties, parliamentarians, government officials, civil society organisations, donors and representatives of African continental and regional organisations, who deliberated on progress made in the pursuit of democratic governance and human development and interrogate the challenges that remain. The Symposium made concrete policy recommendations for tackling these challenges.
