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.
