History Prof. to Take Part in Brookings Event

Matthew Carotenuto, professor of history, takes part in a live Brooking Insitution's Africa Security Initiative event at 10 a.m. on Aug. 12, examining the security status of six nations: Ethiopia, Nigeria, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, South Africa, Kenya, and Tanzania.

With approximately half of sub-Saharan Africa’s population between them, the political environments and the stability of these countries shed considerable light on the overall prospects for the continent.

The event is to be broadcast live on C-SPAN.

In 2015, St. Lawrence University began collaborating with the Brookings Institution, a nonprofit public policy organization based in Washington, D.C., as part of its Africa Security Initiative. The initiative brings together the expertise of St. Lawrence faculty and student interns with Brookings scholars. Faculty from St. Lawrence work alongside Brookings scholars and experts from the Institute’s Africa Growth Initiative in its Global Economy and Development Program.
