International Security Studies continues its Spring 2024 Colloquium Series with a presentation by Goitom Gebreluel, a Henry Chauncey ’57 Postdoctoral Fellow in the Brady-Johnson Program in Grand Strategy. He will present “Nationalist Ideology and Alliance Politics in Africa.” This paper conducts a comparative analysis of alliances forged between governments and non-state actors during civil wars in Ethiopia, Sudan, and Somalia.

Gebreluel specializes in the international and comparative politics of the Horn of Africa. His book project examines the role of ideology and policy learning in the making of Ethiopian grand strategies and how these strategies, in turn, shaped the onset, escalation and termination of the nation’s regional rivalries. He holds a PhD in political science from the University of Cambridge.

This event is open to the Yale community; lunch will be provided. Please register to receive the reading materials for this colloquium.
