Our vision for southern Africa is of an open and just society free from discrimination, where all people can meet their needs and realise their potential.
Our mission is to create opportunities for people in southern Africa to develop their full potential through education and the assertion of human rights.
Education for Justice: the Canon Collins Conference, Johannesburg July 25-27th
We held our annual Conference in Johannesburg from July 25-27th. More than 70 postgraduate scholars from ten countries gathered for an interdisciplinary weekend of discussion, workshops and debate under the theme ‘Education for Justice’. We heard from a range of civil society organisations including Equal Education, the Wits Justice Project, and the Legal Resources Centre, as well as keynote addresses from Adam Habib and Janet Love. See the full programme and speaker profiles here.
Our new podcast series features interviews with Canon Collins Scholars, partners and supporters in southern Africa and the UK. We’ll be releasing a new interview every week during Spring 2014.
