The Oxford Africa Conference is widely regarded as an influential platform and one of the largest Africa-focused conferences in Europe for the last ten years. Past speakers have included Dr Donald Kaberuka (7th President of the African Development Bank), Amina Mohammed (current Deputy Secretary General of the UN), and His Excellency Nana Akufo-Addo (President of the Republic of Ghana).

This year we hope to build on the breadth of conversation about development on the continent, but also take it a step further by increasing thedepth of dialogue engaged in by the participants.
