The Mandela Institute for Development Studies (MINDS) is pleased to announce the dates for its 2015 annual African Youth Dialogue on Elections and Governance to be held in Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe.

It is therefore a useful platform through which African youth have an opportunity to interact as they interrogate and deepen the understanding of issues of mutual interest pertaining to the development and transformation of the Continent. Participants will be drawn from all regions of Africa (North, West, Central, East and Southern Africa) using set criteria.

MINDS is interested in identifying participants doing significant work in the respective countries and communities. To encourage networking and full participation, only 100 youths will be accepted to the dialogue.
