Huduma Fellowship Workshop
The second workshop of the Huduma fellowship will focus on introducing fellows to Political Consciousness, Service delivery, and International Relations.
Political Consciousness and service delivery: This module will shape the Fellows’ appreciation of being politically aware while delivering services to the public. The module will introduce Fellows to aspects of political economy analysis, choices, and decision making. The module will look at the role of activism in leadership and how this shapes public policy choices.
Introduction to International Relations: This module will introduce the Fellows to international relations’ inner workings and how politics, economics, and security interact to deliver and secure the national interest of nation-states. This module will examine the dynamic that connects African diplomacy, conflict, peace, development, the environment, and international commerce, with the global context within which Africa strives to transform itself. The Fellow will appreciate the interaction between state and non-state actors in political, economic, and social decision-making and how these interactions factor in the international public. This subject is complex and voluminous and cannot be exhaustively tackled in one module. Therefore, the introductory course will focus on the African context and deliver content through selected required readings that do justice to African international relations. Upon completing this module, the Fellows will better grasp how the African body polity, its position in the world order, how it works, and why it matters.
