Identity, representation, opportunities

“Afropean Bridges aims to open a discussion about the achievements of the Africa-EU partnership and to address social and cultural issues related to the post-colonial relationship between European and African countries.

We will try to analyse and understand the issue of Afro-European – or “Afropean” – identity and the representation of Africans and African descendants in Europe. We want to offer an alternative perspective to misleading clichés and portrayal, especially those related to migration, poverty, development, human rights.

Afropean Bridges is organised by Ca’ Foscari University of Venice, in the framework of the activities of its International Center for the Humanities and Social Change, in partnership with the think tank Progressi and  in support of the United Nations International Decade for People of African Descent (2015 – 2024).”
