Virtual Seminar

Online, 26.04.2022


World Bank, German Development Institute / Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE)

This is the third event of the Social Cohesion Webinar Series, organized by the Social Sustainability and Inclusion Global Practice Team at the World Bank and the Social Cohesion Team at the German Development Institute / Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE). The purpose of this seminar series is bringing together leading researchers of diverse disciplines, policy-makers and practitioners of national and international organisations to discuss new insights in the area of social cohesion as well as their implications for development cooperation.

In this third event of the series,  Joseph Asunka, Chief Executive Officer of Afrobarometer will provide a picture of social cohesion in Africa based on data from the latest Afrobarometer survey, which have not been publicly released yet. Overall, the session of the seminar series aims to present trends on crucial variables related to social cohesion, portray differences and similarities across African countries with regard to these variables and highlight Afrobarometer as one key source of information about social cohesion that can be extremely helpful to identify what drives it and, in turn, what development interventions should primarily focus on to enhance social cohesion.
