Background

About this database

Over 300 academics across the different divisions in the University have expressed interest in getting involved in the AfOx platform to share ideas, knowledge and expertise with African colleagues. You can search by ‘Area of Study’, ‘Country of Study’ or ‘Name’ to find academics to collaborate with in the University of Oxford.
