About The Event
The UWA Africa Research & Engagement Centre (AFREC) is convening its inaugural Africa Research Showcase on Friday 15 February 2019. The Showcase will highlight the diverse and impactful research being done by the Centre’s Research Fellows and Postgraduate Fellows and will directly engage existing and potential research participants, collaborators, end-users and the interested public with the Centre’s work.
The Centre aims to deepen the social and policy impact of its research on a range of stakeholders beyond academia, including African-Australian communities, local, state and federal governments, industry, non-for-profit organisations, the media and public discourse.
The Centre’s Africa-focused research spans a range of disciplines and intersects with a number of other UWA research entities, including the Public Policy Institute, the Oceans Institute and the Institute of Agriculture. AfREC works with partners through key international research networks, including the Australia Africa Universities Network (AAUN), the Worldwide Universities Network Global Africa Group (WUN GAG) and the Matariki Network, among others.
At the Showcase, AfREC will launch its Research Handbook, Africa Policy Briefing series, and online engagement platform AfricaNarratives. Showcase participants and participants will be invited to develop ongoing engagement with the Centre and its research. Click here to register on eventbrite and here for the event's program in pdf.
