Senegal’s Ambassador to Lecture at Howard University

H.E. Mr. Cheikh Niang

WASHINGTON (March 25, 2014) –H.E. Mr. Cheikh Niang, Ambassador Extraordinary Plenipotentiary of the Republic of Senegal to the United States, will lecture on “The Long March of the African Continent to Sustained Peace and Development” on March 27, 2014, from 12:30 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. in the Browsing Room of Founders Library.
A Senegalese native, Niang is an international relations and diplomacy professional with more than 20 years of experience in public service. He has focused on promoting trade and investment opportunities in Senegal, strengthening the already robust relationship between Senegal and the United States and providing assistance to Senegalese nationals.

He is truly the embodiment of a first class diplomat,” said Michael Frazier, Ph.D., M.C.P., associate professor in the Department of Political Science. “Our students’ vision of Africa will be forever expanded by his wisdom.”

Niang’s accomplishments include being the director of diplomatic seminars at the Center of Diplomatic and Strategic Studies of Paris, a member of the group of governmental experts on the marking and tracing of small arms and light weapons, a lecturer about “Theories of International Relations” at the prestigious Senegalese school of Administration and an observer for the Organization of African Unity during the 1994 general elections in South Africa.
