SANORD 4th Biennial Conference programme

The 4th Biennial SANORD International Conference is only a few days away. We are happy to welcome more than a hundred delegates both from the Nordic and the southern African region to Malawi.

‘This is a rare opportunity that most researches do not have outside their interest groups. Therefore, I am convinced that SANORD has a very bright future in promoting both north-south and south-south dialogue and academic linkages that are truly of mutual benefit to partner universities’, says Dr Emmanuel Fabiano, SANORD Chairperson and Vice Chancellor from the University of Malawi. > See the conference programme
