2023 Annual Arrupe Symposium
Theme: Post Covid-19 Africa
Date: 1-3 February 2023

Each year Arrupe Jesuit University holds an academic symposium as part of its academic
knowledge formation and research. The aim of this symposium is to review steps made in academia
and in industry to encourage original research among AJU’s staff and students. This academic
year’s symposium will therefore increase the competence of students and staff in identifying
Africa’s developmental needs so that they can provide leadership in meeting these. The
symposium will examine whether or not Africa has become a force for moral awareness and
economic progress. Discussions at the symposium will focus on the case studies that have been
presented so that a new understanding of Africa may begin to form. Participants will develop their
understanding of the continent’s successes and failures and from this understanding they will
recognize how a united, developed continent will grow. Thus, the symposium will explicate the
role Africa is playing in positioning herself for progress and economic posterity. It will allow for
the sharing of networked knowledge, facts and case studies whereupon participants could build
their resilience in realizing a united, developed and conscious continent at peace with itself and
with others. The symposium organizers invite AJU students and staff to present papers on how
Africa as a continent is adapting to her realities in the post Covid-19 era. General topics and/or
research areas could include the following:

• Economic development and prosperity through federations and common markets,
common currency, etc
• Abolishing national borders
• The effectiveness of the existing constitutions in the political life of the continent
• Peace, security and democracy
• Migration, immigration and xenophobia
• Philosophy, ICT and education post-Covid
• How curricula can foster competent scholars through knowledge creation
