The Kampala Geopolitics Conference is convened in partnership with the Embassy of France, the KAS SIPODI-EA Regional Programme Security dialogue for East Africa, Makerere University, UN Women, the French Institute for International and Strategic Affairs (IRIS), and Alliance Française Kampala.
The Geopolitics of Kampala is a two-day academic event discussing current geopolitical questions and trends. Experts from Uganda will be joined by thought leaders and policy experts across the world to engage in participatory debates. Initiated by the Embassy of France, the conference is modelled on the Geopolitics Conference held by IRIS in Nantes since 2013, the Géopolitiques de Nantes.
The Conference is now celebrating its sixth edition, which will run from 17th – 18th October 2023, and will include 8 different panels. The Conference will be taking place in Makerere University and several experts will be joining online.
