Event bringing together staff, students, HE leaders and stakeholders in our local community to discuss the potential impact of the Charter
About this Event

Together with other key University of Bristol groups working on issues of decolonisation, Africa, anti-racism, and inclusivity in research, PARC will convene communities across the University and the City of Bristol to foster wide, open and critical engagement with the Africa Charter.

The discussions will crystallise perspectives on its relevance and implications, identify areas for further inquiry, and establish a basis for University-wide, and University-City efforts to make Bristol both a model of and a champion for the Charter’s principles and aspirations.

What you can expect from this event

An introduction to the Africa Charter for Transformative Research Collaborations

To explore and consider ‘Bristol’ perspectives on the Charter: from City of Bristol diaspora constituencies – and from the University’s decolonisation, Forever Africa, anti-racism, inclusive research and restorative futures work

To consider the University’s envisaged positioning as (i) a model of the Charter’s principles and aspirations and (ii) a champion for their wider implementation in the UK and globally, together with City of Bristol constituencies

A look ahead at areas for further inquiry and who will take this work forward

Professor Evelyn Welch, Vice Chancellor at the University of Bristol, and Professor Agnes Nairn, Pro Vice Chancellor for Global Engagement, will be joining us for this event, along with the poet Lawrence Hoo.
