The Africa Circle

The Sciences Po Alumni Africa Office aims to strengthen the ties among alumni, current, and future students of Sciences Po around African themes. Their objectives are threefold: Bringing our community together through frequent and diverse events. Several times a year, conferences-debates on a theme, or "Exper'Afrique" workshops - alumni testimonials and advice - will allow different generations to exchange views and come together. These events, as idea labs, will not only take place in Paris: in collaboration with local chapters, they will be held across the African continent and wherever there is a community of interested alumni.
