The Faculty Seminar Series which is supported by CODESRIA will be having a series of Seminars at Laikipia College Campus (LCC). The objective of the Faculty Seminar Series is to promote a culture of interfaculty and interdisciplinary research dialogue and exchange, which is essential in strengthening social science research capacity in Africa. The Faculty Seminar Series aims to promote interdisciplinary scientific collaboration among colleagues within the same institutions while providing a venue for research dialogues which are essential in adding value to social science knowledge production in Africa. It will also provide support upon which tertiary institutions can build the research dialogue. It is expected that at the end of the Seminar Series, the papers presented will be peer-reviewed, and selected ones published in a special issue by CODESRIA.
