Joint conference IFRA Nigeria/Institute of African Studies: "Land, Culture and Migration"

On Thursday 3rd November 2016, IFRA Nigeria and the Institute of African Studies organised a joint scientific event, a one-day conference titled “Land, Culture and Migration”.

The Institute of African Studies is the main partner of IFRA within the University of Ibadan, and accommodates friendly and ex gratia our Institute in its own premises since IFRA’s opening in 1990. This partnership has always proved fruitful and successful, while the relationships between the successive directors of the two Institutes stayed warm and harmonious during the years. Yet, it was important to celebrate and to strengthen this partnership, by organising an outstanding joint scientific event, the first since 2012. It is in this spirit that IFRA and IAS’ teams worked together during several weeks to set up a one-day conference titled « Culture, Land and Migration », addressing issues regarding cultural, religious, sociological and economic dimensions of urban and rural migrations, spaces, boundaries, landownership, land use policy, tenure, governance and notions of indigeneity and anteriority in Nigeria.
