The Somali Diaspora is one of the largest black and ethnic minority communities in the UK. It is diverse and transnationally engaged but yet considered hard to reach by many public service providers and the wider public. Join us for a one-day conference that aims to dispel issues at the heart of this misperception. It brings together Somali community leaders and members, academics, practitioners and public service providers to unpack broad ranging topics such as social integration, youth and identity, employment, education, security, entrepreneurship, transnational activities, health and well-being.

Speakers include: Government Officials, Mary Harper (African Editor, BBC), Cllr Dr Mohamed Hashi, Dr Idil Osman (SOAS), Dr Anna Lindley (SOAS), Issa Issa (CEO, Bright Education Centre), Onyekachi Wambu (Afford, CEO) Dr Muna Elmi (UCL), Dr Nur Hassan (North Kent College), Hanna Ali (PhD candidate, SOAS), Abdinasir Mohamed (PhD Candidate, Lancaster University), and many more.
