ASG held its first panel discussion titled Is separatism a viable solution for African problems given the failed example of South Sudan? This panel discussion was well attended and drew in panellists from the academic community, practitioners and students.
We organised another panel discussion titled Building Bridges between Communities of Colour in Australia: A Panel Discussion on Anti-Racist Coalitions. This event also drew panellists from practitioners, academics, and across different persons of colour in Australia. It was also well attended.
We had another panel discussion titled The Dilemma of the Resigning Presidents in Africa. This panellist constituted PhD researchers in law and the social sciences. In addition to the panel discussions, members of ASG have presented their various researches in seminars on a monthly basis.
