Event: High Level Debate and Concert
On Thursday the 9th of June at 6pm, The French Embassy to Tanzania, with the support of the Institut Français, is organising a high level debate on democracy. It will be followed by an accordion and violen concert by Vincent Carenzi and César Velev at 8pm at the Alliance Française of Dar es Salaam.
Is Democracy a one size fits all?
Of all the political systems, Democracy has, in the modern world, the best reputation. It is of common understanding by a majority of the world’s population that it is the political model to strive for. But what does it mean to have a democratic state? Is there only one type of democracy or a multiplicity of democracies? What place should a citizen have in shaping its country’s democracy?
A panel bringing together Tanzanian and French specialists from different sectors of society will lead an interactive discussion on these subjects, where participation of the public is highly encouraged.
On this occasion, the French Embassy to Tanzania, with the support of the Institut Français, has invited Porf. Richard BALME, director of the International Public Management Master at the Paris School of International Affairs of SciencesPo Paris.
The debate will be moderated by Ngasuma Kanyeka, founder of Capacitate, a niche communication consulting firm.
Don’t hesitate to let us know which questions you would like the panelists to answer. #democracydebate #democratieenquestion
The debate will be followed by a concert by César Velev on the violon and Vincent Carenzi on the accordion. They will take you through the all time standards of French music.
