West African Educators International Conference 2017

Theme: The Role of Educators in Addressing Emerging Challenges in West Africa

There are several emerging challenges confronting the nations of West Africa including terrorism, militancy, cultism, religious violence, unemployment, access to higher education, curriculum content issues, access to ICT and utilization, gender imbalance in education, citizenship and indigeneship issues, conflicting educational systems in West Africa, poverty, diseases, corruption, conflicts and underdevelopment, human rights abuse and climate change issues. These issues require professional discussions and exchange of ideas to address them.
