Trinity Hall, University of Cambridge

Trinity Hall was founded by Bishop Bateman of Norwich in 1350, making it the fifth oldest surviving college of the University of Cambridge. It is one of the prettiest colleges, reflecting many of the characteristics that one would expect of the Cambridge collegiate system: an interesting history, a strong academic record, and a boat club with its own distinguished past! As such, it exudes an atmosphere of intimacy, tradition and social spirit. Its alumni include such notable figures as Lord Howard, Robert Herrick, F.D. Maurice, J.B. Priestley, Lord Howe, Lord Runcie – and, more recently, Sir Nicholas Hytner, Andrew Marr and Rachel Weisz.

The Centre of African Studies was established in 1965 by the path-breaking anthropologist, Dr Audrey Richards. The Centre acts as a hub for graduate level and faculty research and runs weekly seminars and research workshops for graduate students, as well as international conferences both in Cambridge and in African institutions. In addition to fostering PhD-level research, the Centre runs a one-year interdisciplinary MPhil in African Studies, with teaching contributions from faculty in History, Politics and International Relations, Social Anthropology, Geography and English.

This is Africa Magazine – a publication of the Financial Times

This is Africa, a new publication from the Financial Times, seeks to examine African business and politics in a global context and to make sense of the relationships that Africa is building with the rest of the world. It aims to challenge international preconceptions about the continent and to identify the opportunities and the risks in this dynamic business environment. The publication will equip senior decision-makers with the knowledge to understand the evolution of African economies, to find partners and investments that match their criteria for return or for development and to position their brands to take advantage of the rise of the African consumer.

The Leventis Foundation Nigeria

The A.G. Leventis Foundation was established in 1979 as a result of provisions made by Anastasios G. Leventis, after his death in 1978. Anastasios Leventis, born in Cyprus in 1902, established one of the largest companies in West Africa. The aim of the Foundation is to support educational, cultural, artistic and philanthropic causes in Cyprus, Greece and elsewhere with the direction of activities based on the philanthropic interests of the founder. In West Africa, an area long connected with the Leventis family, the A.G. Leventis Foundation Nigeria was set up in 1988 to continue the philanthropic programme. The foundation has since established five agricultural schools for young farmers in Nigeria and Ghana.

The United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (ECA)

The Economic Commission for Africa (ECA) was established by the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) of the United Nations (UN) in 1958 as one of the UN’s five regional commissions. ECA’s mandate is to promote the economic and social development of its member States, foster intra-regional integration, and promote international cooperation for Africa’s development. ECA’s dual role as a regional arm of the UN, and a part of the regional institutional landscape in Africa, positions it well to make unique contributions to member states’ efforts to address their development challenges. Its strength derives from its role as the only UN agency mandated to operate at the regional and subregional levels to harness resources and bring them to bear on Africa’s priorities.
