Think Tank Challenges in Africa
May 27 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm UTC+3
Think Tanks are a central part of Africa’s knowledge system. They generate objective and cutting-edge research and connects Africa to best international research practices and partnerships for SDGs. However, in the last decade, Africa has witnessed erosion of some of the hitherto key knowledge producing think tanks due to several factors including organisational failures, inadequate funding and general changing knowledge landscape. This session aims to understand some of the underlying strategic challenges that African think tanks face and opportunities for addressing these challenges. The session will involve a panel discussion comprising of key experts who have had experience managing Think Tanks in Africa.
