October 18 – 19th, 2019
Univeristy of British Columbia, Vancouver, BC
The Liu Institute Network for Africa (LINA) at the University of British Columbia is a research-based network branching out of the Liu Institute for Global Issues. This network has emerged out of the need for a platform to bring together stakeholders and resources within research and policy institutions to address policy issues in Africa.
Our inaugural symposium, Building Connections: Between and Within will be be official launch of LINA to the wider research community. Held at UBC campus on October 18-19th, this symposium will feature researchers from Africa and research activities relating to Africa.
With a focus on education, decision-making, and the environment, dialogues, writing, research presentations, music and art will be used as a starting point for discussion on how LINA can fulfil their goal of connecting the global African community.
Attendees will have an opportunity to engage with LINA members and share their thoughts on the vision and mission of LINA while connecting with the growing network in the Lower Mainland.
