“Breaking the frame[works] 

Redefining Africa’s geopolitical, economic and cultural influence today”

Africa today is at a critical juncture. As political earthquakes hit Europe and North America, Africa has the opportunity to directly adopt the newest technologies, skills and tools to navigate in these unchartered waters of global uncertainty in order to readjust to the challenges of the 21st century. Climate change, digitization and migration provide major challenges, but also present a real opportunity for African entrepreneurship and sustainable investment to take advantage of this fast-changing environment.

Africa can excel not just despite, but because of its past challenges. The 2017 Oxford Africa Conference questions the lens through which the continent has been viewed by providing a platform to redefine Africa’s geopolitical, economic and cultural identity in the 21st century.

High profile speakers from the political arena, experts with cutting edge approaches to development, and talented African artists will come together for a conference that will truly reframe and redefine leadership, entrepreneurship and overall success, on African terms. With diversity, a wealth of experiences, and the determination to shape its own future, Africa is breaking the frame. The Oxford Africa Conference invites you to join us on May 19th-20th 2017.
