Africa Leading for Peace


Organised under the theme of “Africa Leading for Peace”, the 2019 Oxford PeaceTalks was held in honour of Kofi Annan, the 7th Secretary-General of the United Nations and founder of the Kofi Annan Foundation.

Seven young Africans share their personal stories and experiences of promoting peace in Africa, whether through producing a theatre production with gang members, or helping young girls access schooling. The Oxford PeaceTalks shows the global relevance of Africa as a continent leading the way in creative peacebuilding initiatives.
