This is the second consecutive year that Dr. Carotenuto will participate in an event hosted by the Brookings Institution in Washington, D.C. St. Lawrence University began collaborating with the Brookings Institution in 2015 on The African Security Initiative. This initiative brings together the expertise of University faculty and students with Brookings scholars. Faculty from St. Lawrence work alongside Brookings scholars to engage policy makers and the public in issues related broadly to security. Several faculty from the African Studies Program have participated in panel discussions at Brookings and the initiative also provides a prestigious summer internship opportunity for students.

Dr. Carotenuto will present at the Brookings Institution on Friday, July 21 at 10:00 a.m.  Registration for audience members at the Brookings Institution is now open!
