The 1st Regional ISQOLS Conference- Africa, "Well-being and Happiness in a Democratic World" 

3-5 October 2024, Johannesburg, South Africa


The Well-being for Africa Conference stands as a beacon of hope for addressing the diverse well-being challenges faced by the continent. This gathering, marked by international interactions and collaboration, serves as a platform to catalyse transformative change and promote a happier Africa underpinned by higher levels of well-being and strong democracies.

Therefore, this regional conference will focus on exchanging and transferring knowledge and establishing robust international interactions and collaboration networks. The above-mentioned will help to pass on knowledge (from leading researchers in Africa and globally) to new scholars and emerging leaders. 

As such, we welcome multidisciplinary approaches that explore well-being issues using multiple lenses and welcome multinational and intercontinental approaches that seek to strengthen the research in quality of life studies. Hence, we are issuing a call for papers from dedicated participants that reflect these values.
