Luanda — The Angolan Writers Association (UEA) will promote on January 08, in its premises, the debate with the theme "The present and future of traditional authorities", as part of the National Culture Day, to be marked on the same day.
According to a press release from the UEA, which reached ANGOP on Thursday, the debate will have as main speaker the university lecturer and Master in law, João Manuel Francisco.
In the statement it is stressed that the reflection on traditional authorities can only be multidisciplinary since it seeks to understand the course of their origins or their processes in pre-colonial, colonial occupation and resistance, to later understand the post-independence civil war, post-civil war in the ongoing development of Angola.
For that matter jus-philosophical reflection, seeking the aid of other sciences like History, Sociology, Anthropology, Political Philosophy, Management Science and History Law, especially the Constitutional and Administrative Law.
Moreover, in Angola, the discussion on the traditional authorities requires a thorough study on cohabitation rules for coexistence between the formal law versus substantive law or customary law that only the traditional authorities practice for historical reasons.
