Since its establishment in October 2008, the United States Africa Command (AFRICOM) has caused debate about the role United States military should play on the continent. Africa is growing in strategic importance, especially in its provision of vital resources and its role as an ally in the “global war on terror.” As the Obama administration seeks to redefine U.S. foreign policy in Africa, it is a critical time to reevaluate the extent of U.S. military engagement on the continent.
Please come and share in this great opportunity to engage experts on this issue and also learn how students and interns can help shape policy.
This event is co-sponsored by the Institute for Policy Studies, the Africa Faith and Justice Network, and Africa Action.
