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. What are the opportunities and challenges that Africa faces in the future? What are the big current issues for higher education in Africa? What differences will it make to Africa now that half the population live in cities? What should the priorities be in African health sectors? Do traditional rulers have any role to play in African politics?

This event forms part of the African Voices series convened by the UCL African Studies Research Centre.

Supported by UCL Grand Challenges.
