The CSIS Africa Program hosted a discussion and book signing with Dr. Adekeye Adebajo, the author of the Centre for Conflict Resolution's latest book, "The Curse of Berlin: Africa After the Cold War." The book is a collection of essays which looks back at the 1884-1885 Conference of Berlin, where European powers set the rules for their partition of Africa. It argues that historical and structural events continue to shape Africa's contemporary international relations. Although the 'Curse' is a recurring theme of the book, the main focus is on African issues after the Cold War. Wine and cheese will be served at the event.
