Course Catalog Description:
Departing from a country-specific focus and a comparative regional perspective, this course examines contemporary African challenges and varied struggles using case studies, and a range of analytical parameters. Of particular interest will be issues relating to peace and (in)security, ethnic/civil clashes, religious conflicts, authoritarianism, democracy and related impacts: political destabilization, social fragmentation, economic disruption; internal displacement and international migration within regional and global contexts etc. Historical contexts (colonial legacies) and contemporary dynamics (contemporary realities) will be studied from a political, and sociological perspective to establish course content and outcomes.
