Andrew combines critical and analytical skills with empathy in order to constantly nudge people deeper into their understanding of a problem.
Andrew Akpan is passionate about the progress of Africa, and is determined to help champion systemic interventions around governance and policy throughout the continent. His rigorous problem-solving approach is a good complement to the generative and systemic approaches already in use by Reos Partners. At Reos, Andrew works on client projects, operations, and communications.
On the academic front, Andrew’s research interests include epistemology, power, and decoloniality. His paper, The Somaesthetics of Disability, was presented within the South Africa philosophy circle. He has recently been invited to serve on a panel and present another of his paper on Blind Peer Review of Journals and Epistemic Injustice, at the ATINER Decolonisation & Desuperiorisation conference in Athens. Andrew believes that genuine transformation begins with change in ideas.
