Pell Center roundtable will focus on U.S. – Africa relations
The Pell Center for International Relations and Public Policy will be hosting another roundtable discussion Friday, Feb. 24, from 11:45 a.m. to 12:45 p.m., in O’Hare Academic Building, Room 121. This discussion is entitled, “Pell Center Roundtable: U.S. – Africa Relations: Will the U.S. Maintain Its Relevance in Africa?”
Roundtable discussions are open to students, faculty and staff at Salve Regina. The Pell Center will provide a free lunch. Space is limited, so please RSVP to email@example.com to secure a spot.
The Biden administration recently developed a more detailed strategy towards Sub-Saharan Africa with the aim to re-engage the continent on a win-win basis.
Key questions to ask as this strategy is adopted are: Will this actually work? How do U.S. goals fit into Africa’s priorities? Who are the important players in this strategy, and why is this happening only now?
Dr. Yvan Ilunga, assistant professor in the Department of Political Science and International Relations, will try to unpack these questions and more as he helps the University community assess best approaches or alternatives to sustaining U.S. interests without jeopardizing Africa’s own needs.
If interested in this roundtable, please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
