The Summit is an annual two-day conference, hosted at Princeton University, which seeks to encourage debate around contemporary challenges and opportunities facing the African continent. The first ever Africa Summit at Princeton 5 - 6 April, 2019 was a resounding success. It has gathered renowned scholars (Pr Ephraim), leading politicians (Ambassador of South Sudan), and forward-thinking corporate and entrepreneurial minds together with our population of highly capable and passionate students at Princeton and neighboring institutions. The Summit provided a unique platform to exchange ideas and develop relationships that can be translated into meaningful action.
