Africa Network structure

The Africa Research Network at York is directed in collaboration with research partners in African institutions. The structure reflects this. The current co-directors are Professor Rob Marchant (Environment and Sustainability theme, University of York) and Dr Cathy Mbidde (Business and Entrepreneurship theme, Makerere University).

This collaborative approach to the network's activities reflects our existing networks of co-produced research. Makerere University and the University of York currently have an MoU covering research and teaching.
