The Department of History’s Sebastian Garcia talked with Dr. Mwita Chacha, an Assistant Professor in International Relations at the University of Birmingham, United Kingdom. Dr. Chacha was the keynote speaker at this year’s annual Dr. John T. Washington Lecture Series hosted by the UCF Department of History’s Africana Studies Program. He discussed recent trends in regional cooperation in Africa by identifying the uniqueness of these trends and placing them in a historical context. Dr. Jonathan Powell, an Associate Professor in the School of Politics, Security, and International Relations at the University of Central Florida and a longtime colleague of Dr. Chacha, joined Sebastian and Dr. Chacha in this podcast conversation as both Dr. Chacha and Dr. Powell have worked together on numerous projects. Together, they provided a dynamic podcast that broadly covered research examining the politics of regional integration and the consequences of political and economic interdependence on domestic security and conflict.

NOTE: At 56:29, Sebastian said “60 or so,” not to be confused with “6 or so,” as it appears to be.
