Panel discussions at the previous Kampala Geopolitics Conference
All is set for the 5th edition of the Kampala Geo-Politics conference that is slated to take place next week from 15th to 16th November 2022.
The conference that is organized by Knorad Adenauer-Stiftung in partnership with the French Embassy in Uganda, Makerere University, UN Women, Alliance Française Kampala and the Institut de Relations Internationales et Stratégiques (IRIS) will turn focus to “Bringing International Debates to the African continent”.
Happening for the 5th time in Uganda, the Kampala Geopolitics conference was inspired by the “Geopolitics of Nantes” in France, a two-day academic public event that aims at discussing current geopolitical questions and trends.
According to the event’s organisers, it will be held at the Yusuf Lule Central Teaching facility auditorium located along pool road in Makerere University.
Over the past four years, the conference has tackled topics and trends affecting Ugandans living in the Kampala Metropolitan area, bringing discussions about how Ugandans can borrow a leaf from developed countries to better the city and the country at large.
This year, the conference will run under the theme “Bringing International Debates to Africa”, offering an interactive platform for dialogue and free exchange on contemporary, regional and international debates to move global debates to an African stage.
Experts from Uganda and the African continent will be joined by international researchers to engage in participatory and documented debates on global topics.
It is expected to host 14 roundtables with experts from Uganda, Africa and International researchers to engage on a variety of topics relating to global challenges, security, regional trends, sustainable development, sport, culture and society.
The conference will also include a series of Twitter spaces to extend the dialogue and debates beyond just the panelists to include the general public as well.
The two-day event will also feature a number of other activities including cultural performances, exhibitions, media trainings and a networking event.
