Our mission is to bring Africa and Spain closer
Through outreach, educational, economic, and cultural activities, we foster mutual understanding and strengthen Hispanic African relations.
Casa Africa organises, in collaboration with the Spanish Institute for Strategic Studies, the information conference # ÁfricaEsNoticia: Conflicts in Africa, Spanish presence and new challenges for the security of the continent
This initiative is created with the intention of demonstrating the importance to the Spanish state of security on the African continent and explain the contribution made by our country to peace and stability in Africa.
The conference includes specialists from academia and Defence and journalists specialised in the African continent who have covered crises and conflicts on the ground. Issues will be discussed such as the Jihad in the Maghreb, Boko Haram or the situation in Central African Republic, although Mali and the Sahel, Somalia and the Horn of Africa and the Gulf of Guinea and piracy will also be present.
#ÁfricaEsNoticia is a specific programme from Casa África to bring debate and reflection on the hottest topics from Africa today to its headquarters in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. It is structured like a cycle of conferences from Spanish and African experts invited to discuss, think and bring us even closer to Africa. The title also refers to Casa África's web section which is updated daily with the main news on the neighbouring continent.
The schedule planned for the meeting is as follows:
