Join FPRI Trustee Ambassador Charles A. Ray and author Ambassador John Campbell for a discussion of Campbell’s new book, Nigeria and the Nation-State: Rethinking Diplomacy with the Postcolonial World.

They will discuss the colonial history of Nigeria, how this history plays into the current political environment of the nation, and how U.S. diplomats can focus more on working with traditional, religious, and local leaders and less with foreign ministries and weak heads of state.
