About Event (from event website harvardadc.com )

Africa: Imagining New Frontiers for Collaboration revisits the enduring, yet dynamic and elusive, concept of “Pan-Africanism” as it takes shape in the twenty-first century and invites conversations on the increasing importance of cross-border and international cooperation and partnership for the continent. The conference will explore creative, collaborative approaches to African challenges and opportunities. These include governance and human rights, education, infrastructure, public health, gender and income inequality, Africa’s economies and urban development.

The conference will bring together policy makers, innovative business leaders, accomplished academics, leaders of civil society organizations and other distinguished individuals to foster productive dialogue about Africa’s future.

The conference endeavors to move beyond raising awareness about the challenges facing Africa by highlighting innovative thinking and promoting those who are working to effect real change in their country or throughout the continent. We hope the conference attendees will leave with a sense of excitement and purpose regarding the continent and its role in the world. Importantly, in the spirit of this year’s theme, we hope that conference attendees will discover new opportunities for collaboration and be inspired to take part in Africa’s future.
