About Mohamed S. Camara

My research interests span the fields of political history, political philosophy, epistemology, and journalism and mass communication and revolve around these areas of African studies: political cultures and governance; military rule in Cold-War Africa; religion and societal values in Muslim West Africa; mass media and post-Cold War political systems; civil society and democratization; and intra-African foreign policy. My current major project is a study of Pan-Africanism and Neo-Pan-Africanism in the age of globalization with a focus on the changing influence of Africa’s former colonial powers, China’s increasing strategic interest in the continent’s resources, and the transformation of U.S. African foreign policy in conjunction with America’s “Global War on Terror.”
