The Oxford Africa Conference is one of the largest and most globally recognized African conferences of its type, organized by the long-established Oxford Africa Society.
The event is a solely student-led initiative that convenes ~500 delegates and ~60 speakers on an annual basis. The upcoming conference will take place on 20th and 21st of May 2016 focusing on Africa under the theme “Challenging Naratives: Governance, Youth Leadership and Business”. It is aimed to provide a vibrant platform for new thinking about an international Africa across all disciplines – politics, business, arts, technology and academia – connecting inter-generational leaders from around the world to shape an integrated and innovative perspective on African issues.
Participants will get the chance to spend two days of Africa in Oxford immersing themselves in experiences that range anywhere from meeting businesses challenges across Africa, to confronting the governance question, to youth-led civil society movements. You will be welcomed into a selection of Oxford University’s most historic venues, where you can expect to mingle with distinguished leaders from business, NGOs, international institutions, and governments.
