Hosted by Stellenbosch University and taking place on the campus in the heart of the world-renowned Cape Winelands – just a short distance from the beautiful city of Cape Town – the XVIth World Economic History Congress will offer participants a wonderful opportunity to take advantage of all that the Cape Winelands, Cape Town and South Africa have to offer.
