The U.S. Army War College dedicated two days to bring together government, civilian and military experts to talk over the issues, challenges and potential success stories for the African continent during a regional symposium Feb. 1-2.
“This symposium was designed to shape and inform the discussion of the complex issues facing the African continent,” said Col. Tom Sheperd, U.S. Army War College director of African Studies. “The goal is to provide an exposure to some of the underlying key strategic factors that play a role in shaping the way the United States achieves its national interests in a regional context.”
