This course will provide an in-depth and comprehensive understanding of U.S. foreign policy toward Africa and how it has evolved over the past several decades. The course will also examine emerging political, economic and social trends in Africa that will impact the continent's future. The class will draw on scholarly texts, relating them as appropriate to current events and significant developments across Africa. At the end of the seminar, students should have a solid understanding of the most important issues and conflicts in Africa today, the emerging issues that could threaten Africa's future political stability and economic progress and the key drivers and components of U.S. foreign policy toward Africa. Students should also have a deeper understanding of the political, economic, and strategic significance of Africa's largest and most important states, as well as the significant drivers behind current Chinese, Turkish, Brazilian and Indian policies in Africa.
