The IOWC 10th Anniversary Report
To celebrate 10 years of the IOWC’s existence, we have produced a report that looks back on its past activities and successes and looks forward to the future. Download the report here.
The IOWC’s history in three points:
The Indian Ocean Project (IOP) was established by Gwyn Campbell in 1993 at the University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg, South Africa.
The IOP was reborn in 1999 as the Association pour l’étude de l’Afrique et les pays de l’Océan Indian (AAOI) at the University of Avignon, France.
The AAOI officially becomes the Indian Ocean World Centre (IOWC) based at McGill University in 2011.
