Centre of African Studies Igbo Conference

Each year, the Centre of African Studies based at SOAS facilitates the Igbo Conference. The aim of the  Igbo Conference is to encourage and promote Igbo Studies in the UK. Whilst there are limited Igbo Language and Cultural studies available in British Universities, the Igbo Conference seeks to provide a forum for intellectual and cultural exchange between scholars, students and members of the community.
