BAYMAU22 Hybrid Conference

October 5-9 2022

Africa and the Diaspora. Rethinking the role of Africans and Afrodescents for the mother continent

Bridging African Worlds

On the African continent, the Diaspora’s recognition had political ramifications, as the African Union defines the African Diaspora as “consisting of people of African origin living outside the continent, irrespective of their citizenship and nationality and who are willing to contribute to the development of the continent and the building of the African Union.”

The purpose of this conference is to increase awareness of African diaspora participation and the critical role of transnational communities in promoting development in their home countries and throughout the African continent.

Save the date:

The Model African Union Bayreuth Conference has developed in its sixth year of existence into a network and place of exchange between people who are at the centre of these ideas and innovations, who produce and reproduce them, young Africans, people from the African Diaspora, people related to issues around the African continent, entrepreneurs, activists and interested people. They all participate in this exchange of thoughts, experience and ideas every year. So there is nothing better than to open the doors and learn from each other. Parallel to that, having over 100 participants together with guests with particular ties to Africa and their well-versed knowledge to the said topic, will be a significant point to expand one horizon of understanding the African continent and its people.
