University of Rwanda, Kigali and Karongi, Rwanda
Oct 7

CIGI Post-Doctoral Fellow Basil Ugochukwu will attend and participate in the International Research Conference hosted by the University of Rwanda's College of Arts and Social Sciences (CASS).

The main purpose of this research conference is to establish sustainable research partnerships between Rwandan and international scholars. The conference will be a platform for scholars with common research interests to initiate a process of sharing ideas, networking, co-authorships and future collaborations. The underlying purpose of this research conference is to achieve concrete research collaborations based on mutual interests between Rwandan and international scholars. Moreover the conference aims at bringing the debate to Africa with African scholars, as an attempt to reduce the existing research ‘divide/gap’ between the global north and south, in spite of their diverse views, skills and knowledge.

Event Speakers

Basil Ugochukwu is a CIGI fellow and an expert on corporate governance, international law and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
