Welcome to the memorial lecture 'Reliving the legacy of Nelson Mandela: What lessons can we draw for present day African and global conflict.'

The lecture shall be given by Prof John Osei-Tutu, a renown Ghananian scholar who teaches at the department of historical studies at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU). Prof Tutu has written extensively about Africa especially west Africa and brings a refreshing look at the legacy of Mandela in dealing with Africa’s post colonial conflict, democracy, peace and Pan Africanism.

After the lecture, there will then be a panel discussing questions like whether there has been a neo-liberal and corporate capture of Mandela's legacy, can the Mandela way be useful in historical conflicts like Palestine Israel and can a progressive international solidarity movement still be possible with the growing right wing populism and imperialism growing all over the world.

In the panel:

Marianne Millstein, researcher at OsloMet. Has also written extensively on different issues regarding South Africa. She co-wrote the last chapter of the book on South Africa's history with Tore Linné Eriksen.

Bill Derman is a Professor at NMBU who has written extensively about Africa and Southern Africa in particular. He has edited and written books about Africa and brings a global look at Mandela, Africa and conflict.

The event will be moderated by Michell Mpike, a South African and founder of Inklusive Books, an Oslo based publishing house. She is also a researcher of social and education policy, as well as a trained facilitator

The event is open and free to all! Snacks will be served.
