NAD - constructive academic encounter

The Nordic Africa Days, the annual NAI conference, was hosted at the University of Iceland in Reykjavík last week. Fifteen staff members and researchers attended the conference and the complete NAI urban cluster was there.
− Nordic Africa Days in Reykjavik was a rewarding event for the Urban Dynamics Cluster. Our papers were presented in two panels, “Infrastructure and Everyday Life” and “Communities and Generations”, in which they were well received, and debated in lively conversations. The overall feeling was that of a constructive academic encounter, says urban cluster leader Annika Teppo.
