The Consortium for International Management, Policy and Development (CIMPAD) has invited Clarkson University Assistant Professor of Political Science S.N. Nyeck to teach a master class during its tenth international conference in Zambia from June 22-25.
The organizing committee selected Nyeck’s proposal “Ideals of Public Procurement Reform and Governance in Africa: A Comparative Survey of Legislations and Practices” to be delivered for an audience comprised of faculty, students, government officials, and community leaders from the U.S. and African countries.
The conference’s mission is to exchange research and knowledge, share ideas, experiences, and best practices among academicians, public servants, non-governmental workers, and students. The conference focus is effective governance in Sub-Saharan Africa.
Nyeck’s research focuses on government outsourcing, gender and sexuality in Africa.
