Crisis in Cote d'Ivoire - ambassador to speak at LSE forum in January

Tuesday 21 January, 5pm
G108, 20 Kingsway

With the situation in Cote d'Ivoire worsening by the day, the ambassador of the Republic of Cote d'Ivoire to the UK has agreed to speak at a public forum at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) in January.

His Excellency M Youssoufou Bamba will highlight the issues and potential ramifications of most recent episodes of political violence in West Africa and discuss potential ways forward. The event is hosted by the LSE Africa Forum, with the School's International Relations Department and the LSE Students' Union Grimshaw Club.

The LSE Africa Forum is a new organisation of graduate students that meets each Wednesday at LSE to discuss critical contemporary matters in the African continent and works to develop innovative approaches for addressing these pressing issues. The Grimshaw Club hosts speakers and events on topics of international relations and is one of the oldest and largest student groups at the LSE.
