The SOAS Africa Centenary Conference is organised by the Centre of African Studies, SOAS (School of Oriental and African Studies), in partnership with the Africa Centre, London, the African Foundation for Development (AFFORD), Hunton & Williams LLP, and the Royal African Society (RAS). The aim of this conference is to celebrate a century of research on Africa by considering the past, present, and future of the continent and of African studies.
This event, entitled ‘Imagining Africa’s Future: Language, Culture, Governance, Development‘, will be held on the 20th and 21st of July 2017 and will examine key future trends, changes and debates that are likely to shape the African continent over the coming century, drawing from a broad range of disciplines and perspectives in a truly inter-disciplinary conference.
AFFORD’s Director and ADEPT Board Member Onyekachi Wambu will be participating in a panel discussion on 20 July on the topic of ‘Actors and Perspectives in the future of African development’, which will also be chaired by ADEPT’s Capacity Development Manager Paul Asquith. Participants in the conference will include academics, professionals, and practitioners with a focus on African issues, as well as members of the public with varying levels of knowledge of Africa and African studies.
