International Seminar Series: Foreign Policy and Issues Sub-Sah
Osaore Aideyan, Assistant Professor of the ISU Department of Politics and Government, will present “Foreign Policy and Issues Relevant to sub-Saharan Africa: What can be expected from the next American administration”
Using the major policy archetypes of historical figures in American Politics as a benchmark to assess U.S.-African relations, my talk provides tentative insights into what a Trump or Clinton administration means for sub-Saharan Africa.
Osaore Aideyan joined the Illinois State faculty as an assistant professor in the Department of Politics and Government in fall 2011. Aideyan’s research and teaching interests are in comparative and African politics, development policy in Africa, and globalization and poverty. His core research area is in the politics of development. He has written articles and book reviews for peer reviewed journals, including most recently “Credit Provision for the Poor: Testing the Theoretical Realm of the Social-Institutional Basis of the Success of Small Scale Financial Institutions in Africa” in Poverty and Public Policy. He also has a forthcoming book chapter on trade and development under the Sustainable Development Goals.
In accordance with the International Strategic Plan, Illinois State University is in the process of developing campus-wide global learning goals. This is an exciting time of growth and change for the ISU community. Comprehensive campus internationalization, as it is called, goes far beyond study-abroad trips and international student recruitment. It includes the expansion of internationally-oriented courses, clubs, dining, housing, civic engagement and other activities at our home campus and affiliated locations. This past Spring, the Office of International Studies and Programs (OISP) dedicated its International Studies Seminar Series to the topics of Global Learning with a focus on Global Engagement. This Fall, we will examine The U.S. Presidential Election, its Global Implications, and its Comparative Perspectives. The International Studies Seminar Series will be held on Wednesdays from 12:00-1:00pm in the Bone Student Center at 100 N. University St., Normal, IL 61761, starting August 31st and ending on November 16th. Students, staff, faculty, and community members are all encouraged to attend. For more information, please contact Dr. Maria Schmeeckle at firstname.lastname@example.org or (309) 438-2932.
This is part of the continuing International Studies Seminar Series sponsored by the Office of International Studies and Programs. Small snacks will be served.
