Since the end of colonisation, there have been a number of multi-state African conferences, expert meetings, etc. on subjects of language planning, harmonization of transcription of African languages, African language use in education, and relatd subjects. This is one of the most recent (for a list of many of the past ones, with documentation for many of them, see http://www.bisharat.net/Documents/ ).
