Third Floor, Levis Faculty Center
919 West Illinois Street

Event Description

Thelma Awori examines the bilateral and multilateral institutions that were created to make international allies and friends. She argues that they have failed. Aid to Africa and other places has been abused and subverted for purposes that turn the word "aid" on its head.
