The Africa Oxford Initiative (AfOx) is a cross-university platform for all things Africa in Oxford.

Throughout the year AfOx hosts several events and workshops about Africa-focussed research with speakers from diverse and varied academic disciplines. The AfOx podcast series has been introduced for the global AfOx community to be able to tune into our events.
