Policy think tank, IMANI Africa, has rescheduled this year’s Africa Liberty Forum from August 20 to September 3-4 due to the outbreak of the novel coronavirus in the country.
The proposed date for the event scheduled to be held here in Accra may change depending on the COVID-19 situation in America, Europe and Africa.
Africa Liberty Forum brings together friends of the freedom movement across Africa to discuss challenges facing the region and to learn from one another how to most effectively advance free-market reforms.
This year’s themes would include conversations on how open borders (ACFTA) can help in building resilience of African economies against man-made and natural headwinds.
The 2020 Africa Liberty Forum is sponsored by Atlas Network and supported and co-hosted by IMANI Centre for Policy and Education/IMANI Africa.
IMANI supported and co-hosted the first Africa Liberty Forum in 2016 under the theme “The growth of Independence, Good Governance and Liberty in Africa”.
The 2017, 2018 and 2019 events were co-hosted and supported by the Free Market Foundation in South Africa, the Students for Liberty in Nigeria and Kenya respectively.
With this year’s forum, participants will learn from distinguished speakers and participate in interactive sessions to strengthen civil society efforts to move public policy in the direction of greater freedom.
Also, at the Africa Liberty Awards Dinner, winners of Regional Liberty Awards which celebrate the most successful projects by Atlas Network partners will be announced. Each winner will receive a cash prize.
