About AAD

More than half a century after formal independence, Africa and its Diaspora has yet to enjoy full political, economic, social, cultural and environmental freedom, sovereignty and self-determination. The vision of the Africa and African Diaspora Conference is to act as a global representative for the African continent and from all regions in the world where people of African descent are found.

The 10 thematic areas of the conference are:

Towards a democratic and equitable international order

Economic liberation and self-determination

Reparatory justice, life and debt in Africa and the Diaspora

Pan-Africanism with All, for All

Decolonizing Knowledge

Black Lives Matter Globally

Building bridges between Africa and its Diaspora

Freedom of migration, border control and hospitality.

Pan-Africanism and Spirituality

Climate change and climate justice
