Africa Week at King’s College London | 4 - 8 March 2024

The African Leadership Centre invites you to save the date for the upcoming King’s Africa Week, happening from 4-8 March 2024.

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

This year’s theme is "Owning Agency: Africa’s future and evolving path in the world" Events for this year's Africa Week will take place both in person and online.

The last five years have seen the world in a state of transition, with Africa itself having to navigate multiple changes. Amid these transitions, Africa has demonstrated its agency across many issues, including peace and security, climate change, health, and technology, among others. During Africa Week 2024, keynote addresses and panels will explore how Africans exercise agency in global affairs, their effects, and where it might lead. Find Africa Week 2024 concept note.
