The American civil war took place for liberation, freedom and civil rights. To an extent, we are free today because of the civil war. Similarly, there has been civil wars in west Africa that may not be for the same reasons. We will seek to link discussion of conflicts and struggles in the western world to the developing countries in west Africa especially, but also the Caribbean world.
