The annual Ibrahim Governance Weekend is the flagship event of the Mo Ibrahim Foundation, held every year in a different African city.

This three day event convenes prominent African and Africa-focused political and business leaders, representatives from civil society, multilateral and regional institutions as well as Africa’s major international partners to identify specific policy challenges and discuss priorities for action.

The conversation is extended to a wider audience through music, art and sport at major public events showcasing some of Africa’s brightest talent.

A whole day is dedicated to the Ibrahim Forum where a key issue for Africa is discussed and specific policy challenges and priorities for action identified. A comprehensive Facts & Figures research document is compiled in advance by the Foundation as the basis for an informed and constructive debate.
