A new landscape which has repositioned the continent in the global perspective, generating interest in international observers and investors.

The program, entirely offered in English, is organized by the Africanistic section of the Department of Cultures, Politics and Society (CPS Africa) of the University of Turin and the Torino World Affairs Institute (T.wai), in collaboration with with the Nordic Africa Institute (Uppsala, Sweden) and the Makerere University (Kampala, Uganda), one of the most renowned academic institutions in Sub-Saharan Africa and with whom UniTo has been conducting an Erasmus Partner Countries Program for the last four years.
