African ‘Question Time’

December 26, 2016 @ 6:00 PM

As part of the African Voices @ UCL season launching UCL’s new African Studies Research Centre you are invited to a special ‘African Question Time.’

This will be a topical discussion in which our panel of visitors from Senegal, Uganda and South Africa are posed questions by the audience at UCL and (via the miracle of technology) by students from around Africa.

This event will be opened by UCL President & Provost Prof Michael Arthur.

Panel includes

  • Adam Habib (Vice Chancellor of the University of Witwatersrand, South Africa)
  • Ibrahima Thiaw, (Cheikh Anta Diop University, Dakar Senegal)
  • Caroline Wanjiku-Kihato, (Urban LandMark, Southern Africa)
  • Peter Waiswa (Makerere, University, Uganda)
