ADAN-UK Annual Forum

The Africa Diaspora Academic Network – United Kingdom (ADAN-UK)

Since 2010 ADAN-UK has held the annual forum in July that brings together new and old members to debate and discuss topical issues that touch on Africa, and, or issues that impact the members’ contribution to academia and practise.

ADAN-UK adopts a partnership approach with like-minded organisations in delivering on its mandate. We are grateful to all our partners – SOAS, University of London; Institute of Commonwealth Studies; University of Nottingham, Henley Business School, and University of Central Lancashire – for their generous support to make our events possible

Past Annual Meetings:

Our aim is to foster and sustain a community of practice in the United Kingdom dedicated to promoting, debating and advancing practical solutions to Africa’s development and governance challenges through research, learning, training and exchange of infáorámation and ideas.
