In Conversation with……
Initiated in February 2021 and hosted by ASSAf Executive Officer, Prof Himla Soodyall, the In Conversation with… series features ASSAf Members and specialists on various topics including issues related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Held on 4 May 2021, the first webinar in the series featured Prof Keymanthri Moodley, Distinguished Professor in the Department of Medicine and Director of the Centre for Medical Ethics and Law, Faculty of Health Sciences, Stellenbosch University. The conversation with Prof Moodley explored how we have fared with pandemic ethics, interrogating how history will judge us for how we have responded.
In the second webinar, titled Origins and Destinations Known: Learning from the Tracer Study of International African Doctoral Graduates, we heard Prof Michael Kahn giving feedback on the findings of a study that explores the mobility of the highly skilled, specifically what happens to the thousands of international African doctoral graduates of our universities. Prof Kahn is a policy analyst and evaluator in the fields of research and innovation.
