ADEPT at the Mo Ibrahim Governance for Development in Africa Initiative (GDAI) Residential School, held in Rabat, Morocco, 20 – 24 March 2016.
ADEPT was pleased to participate in this year’s Mo Ibrahim Governance for Development in Africa Initiative (GDAI) Residential School. This year’s residential school brought together representatives of African governments, universities, and civil society organisations from 20 African countries. Paul Asquith, ADEPT’s Engagement and Capacity Development Manager, delivered a lecture on the 24th as part of the residential school on the topic of ‘Migration, Mobility, and Employment in Africa and Europe’.
The Mo Ibrahim Foundation is an African Foundation established by British-Sudanese philanthropist Mohammed Ibrahim. It was established with one clear objective – to put governance and leadership at the centre of any conversation on African development, as a tangible way to improve the quality of life of African citizens. The GDAI funds a programme of academic scholarships for African postgraduate students at SOAS, University of London, and organises, in partnership with the Centre of African Studies at SOAS and the Rabat School of Governance, an annual residential school for African scholars and opinion-formers from across the continent.
