Following last year’s inaugural Australia-Africa Dialogue lecture by former PM the Hon. Kevin Rudd, a symposium “Advancing the African-Australian Agenda” is being organised as part of the Africa Day 2014 celebrations. The symposium will focus on two core themes:• The multifaceted relations and interactions between Africa and Australia; and,• Challenges and prospects for African-Australian diaspora.
Topics likely to be discussed will emerge from the following sub-headings: settlement, integration and inclusion, the ‘African-Australians hybrid identity’, the feasibility of a ‘New Africa Renaissance’ model, resources use & development, peace and security for Africans, and the utilisation of African nationals in the diaspora
