Long abstract:

This panel will examine the African knowledge connections with Europe, but also with Asia, the Americas and Oceania; it will compare African and other experiences. There will be attention for African Studies in Africa and linkages with the rest of the world: the geopolitics of knowledge and innovation. And a key issue will be the attempts to achieve greater ‘strategic fairness’ in partnerships.
