Conference Venue

The conference will be held at the University of the Western Cape (UWC) in Bellville. The University, which celebrated its 40th anniversary in the year 2000, is one of the youngest and most dynamic places of higher learning in South Africa.


The University of the Western Capewas established in 1959 by an Act of Parliament as an ethnic college for "coloured" students. Since then, it has transformed itself from a small apartheid educational institution to an internationally recognised university with a reputation for excellence in teaching, learning and research. UWC has a rich history of opposition to apartheid. For nearly three decades - from the 1970s through to the early 1990s -students and staff consistently protested against segregation and inequality in society and, particularly, in higher education.

Bellville is situated in the northern suburbs of Cape Town. It is 20 minutes’ drive from Cape Town international airport, half an hour’s drive from Cape Town city centre, and approximately half an hour from Stellenbosch, the heart of the Cape winelands region.


Cape Town is famous for its stunning views, and visitors can also enjoy the delights of its scenic harbour from the popular Victoria & Alfred Waterfront complex.
