The Danish Institute for International Studies (DIIS) and the Danish Institute for Parties and Democracy (DIPD) invites all interested for a meeting on April 29, titled: 'Democratic Developments in Tanzania':
Democracy in Tanzania may be at a historical juncture. The 2010 elections were described as the most competitive and legitimate in the history of Tanzania, and may be indicative of changing times after years of a one party dominance in the country.
In 2011 Tanzania embarked on a long awaited constitutional reform, which could also have a massive impact on political life. The aim of the seminar is to explore the state of democracy and political power in Tanzania. Through presentations on the state of political parties and multiparty dialogue, the constitutional process, and the role and composition of the political elite in Tanzania, the seminar seeks to give an insight into political life in the country.
Speakers include three representatives from DIPD’s new partner in Tanzania, Tanzania Centre for Democracy (TCD). Their visit to Denmark is a unique opportunity to hear Tanzanian perspectives on the political scene in the country. Speakers Daniel Loya, Director, TCD James Mbatia, Chair of TCD and NCCR-M Nape Nauye, Central Committee Member and Head of Department of Ideology and Publicity, CCM
