The African Development Conference is taking place on Friday April 3rd and Saturday April 4th at Harvard Kennedy School and Harvard Law School. The ADC is an annual conference bringing together policy makers, academics, students, business leaders and government officials to offer a platform for the advancement of intellectual and practical debate on development in Africa. Specifically, the theme this year is “Looking South – Moving Forward: Fostering development collaboration within the global South”.
