Join us for the final lecture in The Global Partitions Series for K-12 educators titled Global Partitions: Self-determination in Southern Africa — The contending forces of division and unification from the colonial to post-colonial eras.

Lubar Distinguished Research Chair, at University of Wisconsin Law School, and Visiting Professor, School of Law at University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg, South Africa will present on partition through a historical and contemporary lens. Featuring Southern Africa as the case study, Klug will use these lenses to help attendees understand the conditions that either hinder or facilitate partition, particularly in the colonial and post-colonial context.
