Africa Week at King’s College London | 6-10 March 2023

Dear All,

The African Leadership Centre invites you to save the date for the upcoming King’s Africa Week, 6-10 March 2023.

King’s Africa Week is an annual celebration of research, education, and outreach activities on Africa, that is convened by the African Leadership Centre and Africa research group Department of War Studies. The events bring together academics, researchers, and students from across King's – and offer the opportunity to hear from African scholars, leaders, and thinkers. 

This year’s theme is "Changing Africa in a Shifting Global Landscape " Events for this year's Africa Week will take place both in person and online.

This year’s Africa Week will centre around the 5th King’s Engaged in Africa conference. The conference will comprise several keynote events and roundtable discussions highlighting King’s engagement in Africa, with scholars from King’s and partner institutions engaging in conversations and dialogues about Africa’s dynamic role in a shifting global landscape.

The events will interrogate how various constituencies on the continent are in spaces of transition and projecting Africa’s voice in a global context also in great flux. We consider these dynamics across themes including economic uncertainty, energy crises, violent conflicts, and environmental challenges.
