The Trust and Africa in the 21st Century

The Rhodes Trust's Legacy, Equity & Inclusion working group on the theme of the Trust and Africa in the 21st Century

Charge: To convene dialogues, engage experts, and prepare a paper outlining options for the Trust to consider to launch meaningful, mission-related activities in the short, medium and long term that positively contribute to and engage with the continent that was the source of Cecil Rhodes’ wealth and where systematic inequalities of wealth, power and opportunity today reflect its complex history of extractive industries and colonialism.
