Faculty student became one of the Winners of Tana Forum Essay Competition

Sagni Getu Sori, a Second year Peace and Conflict Studies master program student has been  selected as the third place winner of the Tana Forum Annual Essay Competition on this year’s theme : "The AfCFTA: A Milestone for Pan-Africanism and Conflict Transformation". In his essay on “The Implications of the Latest Political Developments in the Horn of Africa for the Utilization of AfCFTA and its Impediments”, Sagni assessed the recent developments in the geopolitical landscape of the horn of Africa and the implications of these either as impediments and opportunities for the enforcement of the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA).

 As one of the winners, Sagni will have a mentor assigned to further work and develop his essay for the official Tana forum presentation, set to be held at the end of October, 2020.  During the forum, Sagni will also have the opportunity to interact with high level states men and women, civil society leaders and academics, and establish networks for the further development of his career.    

This is a second time in a row a student from the faculty has won the Tana forum essay competition. It is remembered that a student from the master program in Political Science was one of the winners of last year’s edition of the competition.  

 Congratulation to Sagni!
