Tomorrow, Tuesday the 21st of October, is exactly 2 weeks before the US election. We will use the opportunity to discuss the impact of this election on Africa with African intellectuals. Please join us and enrich this debate with your perspectives or questions!

Join us on your PC as we ask the question: Will a new US president with ancestry from Kenya mean a better deal for the people of Africa?

The Cyber Seminar is a virtual seminar a forum for participants all over the world to engage with each other and with panelists from academia, politics and civil society on issues of current interest to Africa.

For the upcoming session, the topic is the role of the USA in Africa. Is the US building an Empire in Africa? Is the recently renewed US interest in Africa founded on Africa as an oil producer and producer of natural resources? Why is the US Army building an Africa commando?  Will Obama change the US policy on Africa? Will a new man in the White House mean fairer trade relations with countries in Sub Saharan Africa?

If you are interested in some background information about the role of the US in Africa and Obamamania on the continent, have a look at what some African bloggers write.   

Participate in the Cyber Seminar organized by the Norwegian Council for Africa and engage with African experts and other participants on the future role of the USA in Africa.

Panelists: Samuel Muene, from Kwani? in Kenya, Carina Ray, Professor at Fordham University, USA and Professor Paul Tiyambe Zeleza, Professor of African American Studies and History and Head at the University of Illinois at Chicago, USA
Place: World Wide Web

Date: Tuesday October 21st (2 weeks before the US Election)
Time: 15.00 18.00 local time Norway (GMT + 2)
you may log in and out of the debate as you wish
