About AYGS Conference
The Africa Young Graduates and Scholars (AYGS) conference is an annual event organised by the Africa Institute of South Africa (AISA) in the Human Sciences Research Council (HSRC). The main purpose of the AYGS is to serve as a platform for young scholars, policy makers, and key actors in the development sector to produce and share research-based knowledge about the development challenges Africa faces, as well as to publish and disseminate their research findings. The event also enables AISA to strengthen the capacity of young African scholars in various aspects of scholarship. AYGS 2019 will be a 2-day event to be held in February/March 2019. It will start with an opening plenary in the morning of the first day titled “Africa’s Youth Dividend, Fact or Farce”? The opening plenary will then be followed by breakaway sessions along the sub-themes of the conference.
