An African Perspective on Globalization and International TradeFeaturing June Arunga
Discovery Institute is pleased to welcome June Arunga to Seattle for a lecture on the positive impact of trade and globalization on African countries.
Ms. Arunga is a Kenyan journalist and law student who spent six weeks traveling the length of Africa from Egypt, Sudan and Congo to Angola, Namibia and South Africa to examine the opportunities and challenges facing these countries. The result was a documentary she produced for the BBC entitled, “The Devil’s Footpath.” She was also featured in a segment on Kenya in Johan Norberg’s 2003 documentary “Globalisation is Good.” June is currently in Seattle working on a short documentary on recent African immigrants. She is a fellow at IREN-Kenya, the International Policy Network and E Pluribus Unum Films.
You won’t want to miss June’s engaging and articulate first-hand account of how globalization is fostering economic opportunity and freedom on a continent of immense potential.
The lecture will be held from 4:30 PM to 6:00 PM on January 13th at Discovery Institute, located at 1511 Third Avenue, Suite 808 in downtown Seattle. Cost of the lecture is $10 and includes a selection of regional wines and cheese.
