Africa Week

Africa Week is an annual celebration of research, education and outreach activities on Africa. It brings together academics, researchers and students from across King's – and offers the opportunity to hear from African scholars, leaders and thinkers.

Hosted by the African Leadership Centre and Africa research group, Africa Week is also a showcase of King's collaboration with African universities and partners.

Africa Week 2023 | 6-10 March

Theme: Changing Africa in a shifting global landscape

Africa Week 2023 asks, to what extent is Africa’s navigation of its complex contradictions offering opportunities to generate influence in global spheres? What is the situation with various constituencies on the continent currently in spaces of transition? How is projecting Africa’s voice in a global context also in great flux?

Throughout the week, our scholars and partners will consider these dynamics across themes, including economic uncertainty, energy crises, violent conflicts and environmental challenges.

5th King's Engaged in Africa conference

This year's Africa Week will centre around the 5th King's Engaged in Africa conference. Across several keynote lectures and roundtable discussions, scholars from King's and our partner institutions will engage in conversations and dialogues about Africa's dynamic role in a shifting global landscape.

Integral to King's Internationalisation strategy, the conference offers a platform to highlight King's global exchanges through research and impact, engagement with international partners and networks, and our research links to intercultural learning.
