About the conference

Asia and Africa, with a population of 4.6 billion and 1.3 billion respectively, represent about 80 percent of the world’s population. Major changes have taken place both within and between the two continents in areas ranging from economic development, trade, health care, demography and climate to politics and entertainment, with impacts that reach out in many cases across the globe. The conference will focus on the multiple forms of linkages occurring between Asia and Africa in an increasingly multi-polar world. It will feature keynote speeches and a range of panels and roundtables across disciplines, temporalities and themes in the study of Asian and African dynamics.

More information will follow in due course.
