Our Committees

Politics & Governance

 In the face of existing and emerging geopolitical contexts such as the consolidation of right-wing nationalism, how does one reimagine Politics and Governance at this point in time?

Socioeconomic Transformation

By identifying the scope of development that we are working towards in Africa, how can we secure our socioeconomic future?

Culture & Identity

Who are we, as Africans? What is essential to being ‘African’ that makes us African? How has being ‘African’ evolved through the years?

Theme: Which Way, Africa?

As the world grapples with unprecedented technological and ecological change, as well as the transformational shift of global centers of power, Africa is at a critical juncture where her future will be determined by her response to these circumstances. Unfamiliar as they may be, the novelty of these circumstances provides us with an opportunity to revisit conceptions of development and strategies for its attainment in Africa.

Both a challenge and an opportunity, this gives rise to the question and theme of this year’s conference: Which way, Africa? Read more about the theme here:
