The theme for the symposium is “Africa’s innovations in the global fight against COVID-19”.

During the month of May we commemorate the establishment, in 1963, of the Organisation of African Unity – a precursor to the African Union – which made Africa a pioneer in continental unity and nation building.

As a celebration of this moment, the University of Cape Town (UCT) will be participating in a series of virtual symposiums on “Africa’s innovations in the global fight against the COVID-19 pandemic” to discuss pertinent governance and developmental issues in Africa, towards the formulation of policy recommendations.

The university will also be curating responses from across the university community about what it is that makes us African, and how this informs what we do.

Date: 27, 28 and 29 May 2020
