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 politics and new media in Somalia, socioeconomic dynamics in “rural” Ethiopia, and the politics of natural resource conflict in Sudan. 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.
Please note that this week's Horn of Africa seminar will take place in the Pavilion Room, St Antony’s College, in partnership with Mokoro.
