Africa is rising, or so the saying goes. Following this imaginary, many aspirations have been formulated and countless changes have taken place on the African continent over the last 10 years. Jobs and employment have been at the center of many debates on African futurity with the potential of digitalization playing an ever more prominent role in recent times. But what is actually happening on the ground? How do African entrepreneurs use digital tools and create new business models? And what are the implications of digitalisation for workers’ livelihoods?

The CBS Africa Initiative — a cross-departmental network of researchers working on Africa — and the Inequality Platform would like to invite academics and practitioners interested in engaging with these questions to join us for the 1-day conference ‘African Futures: Digitalization, jobs and new business opportunities.’
