Join us for the Governance Innovation Week 2019!
During this one-day event, which forms part of GovInn Week 2019, we will be exploring who the non-state actors in Africa are, the kind of power they hold, the interaction between non-state and state actors, and what relevance they have in terms of governance. Key debates on this day will be around the changing nature of the state, the emergence (or emerging interest) in non-state actors in governance, and the implications of these emerging actors for the future of the state and governance in Africa.

Dr Leon Mwamba received his PhD certificate at the graduation ceremony held in the AULA at the University last week Wednesday 4 September 2019. Congratulations Dr Mwamba!
