The NARN Launch
The Nordic Africa Research Network (NARN) that has recently been created to enhance co-operation among Nordic Africanists will be launched on the 13th of May at 11.00 O'clock at the Nordic Africa Institute. For program see attached PDF.
Networks are important in all aspects of life as they link the local with the global, the private with the public and also facilitate the creation, sharing and dissemination of knowledge. They therefore act as bridges between research, practice and policy.
