DUDLEY, Mass.—Monde Muyangwa, Ph.D., director of the Washington, D.C.-based Wilson Center’s Africa Program, will address on Tuesday, Oct. 9, 2018, United States strategic interests in Africa with respect to counterterrorism and countering violent extremism, as part of the Nichols College Master of Science in Counterterrorism Guest Speaker Series. This free event is open to the public and will be held at 7 p.m. in Davis Hall, Room 205-207, on Center Road.

A widely cited authority on governance, security, and development issues, Dr. Muyangwa challenges dominant narratives about the African continent. She has visited more than 30 African countries and leverages her experience to address the continent’s most critical issues, as well as U.S.-Africa relations. Previously the longtime academic dean at the Africa Center for Strategic Studies at the National Defense University, Dr. Muyangwa has been a professor of civil-military relations, non-profit leader, and a development consultant. She holds a Ph.D. in international relations and a B.A. in politics, philosophy, and economics from the University of Oxford, and a B.A. in public administration and economics from the University of Zambia. She was a Rhodes Scholar and a Wingate Scholar.

The Nichols College Master of Science in Counterterrorism Studies is the first graduate program in the United States to focus on violent extremism.
