The public symposium is the second instalment to commemorate the annual Africa Month. The 2019 symposium focused on the role of young African leaders in Pan-Africanism and Regional Integration. In 2020, the Symposium discussions will focus on responses by African countries to the COVID-19 epidemic, in relation to governance and development. Through the symposium, there will be an exploration of the actions required towards the fulfilment of African shared values and principles in the future.
