Africa’s Last Colony: Activism, engagement, and escalation in Western Sahara

Date & Time April 23, 2021 12:00pm - 1:15pm

This panel features activists and academics who will speak about the various legal, political, and economic dimensions of the Western Sahara conflict. The conflict, which began in 1975, is both one of the world’s oldest and its most ignored and has largely defined Morocco’s relationship with neighboring countries and international actors. The panel experts will provide background information on different aspects of the conflict and engage in conversation around the recent re-escalation of hostilities and US policy decisions under Trump and Biden.
