Horn of Africa: Panel discussion: State Formation
Convener: Jason Moseley
Speakers: Sarah Vaughan (Edinburgh), Michael Walls (UCL), Christopher Clapham (Cambridge)
Discussion & launch for Christopher Clapham’s new book: The Horn of Africa: State Formation and Decay
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 Israel’s involvement in Sudan’s early civil war, Islamist violence in Kenya and patterns of state formation and decay across the Horn of Africa. 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.
Except where otherwise noted, the seminar takes place on Tuesdays at 5.00 pm in the Seminar Room, at the African Studies Centre (13 Bevington Road, OX2 6LH).
