INVITATION FOR THE FOURTEENTH MONTHLY EXPERT SEMINAR ON ‘CIVIC EDUCATION IN UGANDA’

INVITATION TO PARTICIPATE AT THE 14 TH MONTHLY EXPERT SEMINAR ON CIVIC EDUCATION IN UGANDA

Centre for Basic Research (CBR) is implementing a project titled: ‘strengthening Evidence-based
Democratic Governance Agenda Setting and Engagement by Civil Society in Uganda’. The project, which considers civic education as one of the foundations upon which democracy thrives, seeks to produce, manage and disseminate knowledge in such a way that enables civic education stakeholders and practitioners pragmatically engage duty bearers and the citizenry to enhance democratic governance practices.

Through conducting Monthly Expert Seminars on critical civic education issues, CBR has created an opportunity for civic education intellectuals and practitioners to engage with emerging challenges of democracy to understand not only how to deepen democratic governance discourses, but also to critique its approaches, delivery mechanisms, and impact. The public discussions generated are considered relevant to nurture consensuses on contested political and other issues that affect the country’s democratic dispensations.

The purpose of this letter is to invite you to participate in this month’s expert seminar that will be held
on Tuesday 24th September 2019 at Centre for Basic Research offices located on Plot 15 Baskerville Avenue, Kololo, starting at 8:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
The Seminar which will focus on the topic: ‘Nurturing a Patriotic Citizenry in Uganda: Examining
the contribution of a compulsory National Youth Service Program’.
