### Conflict in Africa
* Bryant Shaw
* 13-sep-18 to 27-sep-18
* 1:30 PM to 3:30 PM
The vast areas in Africa challenge our understanding of violent conflicts there. This three-week series attempts to illuminate the background of conflicts in two of those areas. The first presentation surveys the roots and dynamics of war in Democratic Republic of the Congo, which has taken 5.5 million lives since 1996, more than Syria, Iraq or Vietnam, and involved nine countries. The second and third presentations examine the rising influence of al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb and Boko Haram in West Africa’s Sahel, and the American stake in the region.
