Greetings, ICAP Supporters!
On July 31, Travis Adkins, Lecturer of African and Security Studies, Walsh School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University, and ICAP Alumnus, hosted a fire side chat with journalist, Isha Sesay and The Brookings Institution Africa Growth Initiative, on her new book “Beneath The Tamarind Tree” on Nigeria and the resilience of the kidnapped Chibok Girls.
The discussion and book focused on the personal stories of some of the Chibok girls, emphasized the global necessity of girls’ education, scrutinized the role of the media during such tragedies, investigated the governance challenges that persist in Nigeria, and imparted broader lessons for national security.
