Tayarisha participates in ICEGOV Conference 2022

- ZM

Prof. Mzukisi Qobo will be moderating the High-level African Ministerial Panel on “Harnessing multilateralism for digital governance development”.

The 15th edition of the International Conference on Theory and Practice of Electronic Governance (ICEGOV 2022) is being hosted in Guimarães, Portugal.

ICEGOV was conceived in 2007 as an annual gathering to bring together academia, governments, international organisations, civil society, and industry to share the latest insights and experiences in the theory and practice of Electronic Governance (now more commonly referred to as Digital Governance). Its first edition (2007, Macau) marked the beginning of a journey that has led ICEGOV and its participants to 13 different cities spread over 12 countries and 6 continents.

The conference promotes knowledge sharing through the presentation and publication of academic papers, keynote lectures, plenaries, workshops, networking events, and other sessions. It is a platform where people from all spheres of the community work together towards advancing public policy and development, and strengthen international cooperation.

Additionally, ICEGOV links the worlds of research and policy by promoting the interaction and cooperation between universities, research centres, governments, industry, international organisations, and the United Nations system.

Prof. Mzukisi Qobo, Tayarisha’s Acting Director and Head of the Wits School of Governance, will be facilitating a panel at the Conference. For more information about the panel discussion, click here
