Oxford Africa Conference 2018

The Oxford Africa Conference is the leading interdisciplinary conference on Africa delivered by a team of Oxford students. The Conference brings together heads of state, policymakers, business leaders, academics, artists, students, and professionals to critically expand the discourse on Africa. In its eighth year running, the conference will provide a vibrant platform for new thinking about a global Africa across all disciplines – politics, society, business, technology and academia – connecting inter-generational leaders from around the world to shape an integrated and innovative perspective on Africa’s future

2018 Conference Theme: Enough Rhetoric! Catalysing an Era of Concrete Action

The 2018 Conference aims to examine the current social, political and economic landscape in Africa and provoke more pragmatic ways through which African countries can reposition themselves in relation to these dimensions. The Conference will focus on how to move beyond the rhetoric and bring to the fore contentious organizational, structural and societal issues that are rarely addressed adequately, but collectively are key for the continent’s forward trajectory.

Intentionally daring, the theme aims to ensure that the 2018 Conference is actionable. Many an African countries have been subjected to blame for development, democratization and economic policies that fall short in their implementation process, which arises from an array of reasons. Our hope is that by discussing and delivering actionable approaches to tackling issues within Africa, Conference attendees will be able to contribute in meaningful ways as to how to fast track progress.In the spirit of concrete action, the key resolutions of the Conference will be collated and passed on to key decision makers in African institutions.
