Understanding Adolescence in African Contexts

This series of podcasts explore the question of adolescence in African contexts. They are part of the ongoing work of the 5-year, UK Research and Innovation Global Challenges Research Fund Hub, Accelerating Achievement for Africa's Adolescents, hosted by the University of Oxford and the University of Cape Town. The podcasts were recorded during a three-day workshop on the theme of Understanding Adolescence in African Contexts, hosted at Rhodes House in Oxford. These podcasts are part of the innovation strand of the Hub's work, which will co-ordinate further workshops over the coming years, seeking to challenge and extend the ideas that underpin research on adolescence in Africa.
