ARTICLE ON NELSON INSTITUTE DIRECTOR IN SOUTH AFRICA’S LARGEST NEWSPAPER

August 30, 2006

HARRISONBURG—Dr. J. Peter Pham, Director of the Nelson Institute for International and Public Affairs at James Madison University, was the subject of an article in South Africa’s largest newspaper, the Mail & Guardian. Dr. Pham is currently in Johannesburg to address the First International Conference on Combating and Preventing Terrorism in Africa.

 

The article by Hila Bouzaglou, headlined “Terrorism: The New Scramble in Africa,” quotes extensively from Dr. Pham’s various publications on the subject of terrorist threats and activities on the continent. However, due to the off-the-record nature of the conference, which is being attended by diplomats, parliamentarians, military officers, and other government officials from African, European, and North American countries as well as academics and representatives of non-governmental organizations from the three continents, there were no direct quotations from Dr. Pham’s address to the delegates.
