Toward an Africa Without Borders is dedicated to opening borders, both physical and metaphorical, and to promoting unity and solidarity between groups in Africa and the Diaspora. Our third international conference brings together scholars and activists from around the globe to investigate how academic theory can be translated into positive change for those living in Africa and the Diaspora. We look forward to a lively exchange of ideas and the creation of new alliances across different sites of engagement.
