FODAY DARBOE – Violence is a profound threat and it is likely exacerbated by climate chaos. Global warming as an important effect on civil conflicts has been recently debated by many scholars and policymakers. Scholars from backgrounds as diverse as economics, climate science, peace studies, and political science have explored the adverse effects of climate change and ecological changes on civil conflicts.
FODAY DARBOE – In light of President Obamaâ€™s 2015 trip to Africa, likely his last trip to Africa as the U.S. president, it is appropriate to evaluate his governmentâ€™s foreign policies in Africa since he assumed office. Through this assessment, it is sadly plain to see that Obamaâ€™s policies have not helped the vast majority of Africans. Instead, the policies have allowed the suppression of the African peopleâ€™s hoped-for democratic reforms while simultaneously bolstering the power of corrupt African elites.
