The 2019 Forum: Insecurity

Africa is in a state of insecurity.

This insecurity is fuelled by a series of various failures, conflicts, and differences that are either highlighted by natural events or taken for granted by leaders and officials. The security of human life is not dependent on the absence of possible external and internal threats to sovereignty, but also when jobs, healthcare, water, and other social amenities are invulnerable.

In March, the SOAS African Development Forum will present a conference on the current state of insecurity in Africa, and its prospects for development.

With 3 Keynote Speakers and 4 Panels, each with 4 panellists and a Chair, we offer:

**Access to the largest site on African expertise outside Africa

**Complimentary refreshments throughout the day

**Authentic African cuisine 

**1.5 days of engaging and thought-provoking debate
