Is there a Pan-African agenda that is helping the continent confront the global issues of the day? This is the key question to be addressed at an upcoming conference hosted by the Mapungubwe Institute for Strategic Reflection (Mistra) with the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung, the Institute for Global Dialogue and the National Institute for the Humanities & Social Sciences. The conference is focused on Pan-Africanism in the context of big power rivalry, climate change, the effects, the fourth industrial revolution and the rise of populism and authoritarianism.
