JOHN SANFIELD RECEIVES APPOINTMENT AS CHAIR OF AFRICAN STUDIES


CTN Peer Mentor Professor John H. Stanfield II from the University of Mauritius has been appointed as the first SSR Chair of African Studies. The responsibility of the SSR Chair is to bring African and African Diaspora Studies as a research area and discipline to this furthest east African nation which is located in the Indian Ocean region. This appointed task will be pursued through Professor Stanfield    developing and mobilizing   a constellation of institutional and network partnerships in Africa and in Asia and elsewhere around the world to establish a University of Mauritius based venue for best practice thinking and advocacy in addressing pressing quality of life problems in Africa and in the Global African Diasporas. This unprecedented university appointment is the latest endeavor by Mauritius governance and civil society leadership to move their nation, called by some the Switzerland of Africa, closer to becoming the continent' s premier democracy and source of innovative best practice thought leadership and advocacy in and for Africa and the Global African Diasporas. This will be the first appointment of its kind extended to an American on the continent of Africa.
