The Fifth Conference of ASAI analyses, first of all, the ‘Africas’, that is, the plurality of the phenomena composing the wealth of the African continent or determining its deep asymmetries. This means also to look at the collocation of the continent and its populations in the international social and political dynamics, making Africa a privileged point of observation to study the most important processes of ‘the global’ too. Secondly, the Conference intends to overcome the vision that deprives the ‘voice’ and the ‘agency’ of the Africans of their fundamental relationship with the political-economic forces and with the social processes that move through the continent.
