This edition of Focus on Africa highlights the remarkable work of several Yale students and faculty who continue to showcase Yale's dedication to African scholarship and discourse through innovative coursework, business ventures, meaningful partnerships, and various events and activities on campus and on the continent that embrace the richness and complexity of contemporary Africa. This Spring we also welcome Somali Human Rights Activist and Physician Hawa Abdi as the 2017 Chubb Fellow, we celebrate the timely creation of the new Program on Refugees, Forced Displacement, and Humanitarian Responses, and we look forward to the return of AFRICA SALON, Yale's Contemporary African Arts and Culture Festival. Enjoy the issue!
