Convener: Jason Mosley

Speaker: Martin Plaut (Institute of Commonwealth Studies)

The Horn of Africa Seminar brings together students and scholars interested in examining the region from a multidisciplinary and comparative perspective. This term, the seminar will look at a variety of issues, including the history of South Sudan, opposition in Ethiopia, dynamics of state formation and decay across the Horn of Africa, and practices of representativeness amongst Muslims in Kenya. By hosting lectures by experienced researchers alongside post-graduates, and by mixing academic and policy research, we hope to come to a shared, factually informed and politically relevant understanding of trends in the region.
