The 2nd Fletcher Africana Conference will focus on reconciling the dichotomies that exist in 21st century Africa: technological innovation alongside forces of friction like infrastructural and regulatory gaps; economic growth alongside unemployment and lack of inclusive growth; improvements in health and well-being indicators alongside health crises and increased human insecurity; increased foreign direct investment alongside unclear risk management strategies.

We are excited to welcome two keynote speakers, Amina Alum Ali, the permanent representative of the African Union to the United States and Antoinette Sayeh (F82, F85), the Head of the Africa Department to the IMF. We will also host panels focused on Technology and Innovation, Conflict and Peacebuilding, Governance, and Trade and Investment with panelists from a wide range of disciplines. Read more about the panels on our website. Registration is now open on Eventbrite.
