Every year, Researching Africa Day brings together post-graduate and early career researchers from across a range of disciplines. The Day offers an opportunity to discuss research strategies and approaches, to develop ideas in a constructive, stimulating, and engaging environment, and to network with other researchers. The 2015 Researching Africa Day will bring together post-graduate and early career researchers to reflect imaginatively on where African welfare is found, who provides it, and why.
The title of the 2015 workshop is:
