Mandela Chair

Nelson Mandela Visiting Professorship in International Relations

In September 2011, Professor Acharya was awarded the prestigious Nelson Mandela Visiting Professorship in International Relations by the Department of Political and International Studies at Rhodes University, South Africa for the years 2012 and 2013. He visited Rhodes several times, teaching short courses on comparative regionalism and international relations, and giving lectures in other South African universities and the University of Namibia. An important outcome of his tenure at Rhodes was the international conference on African Voices in International Relations, which resulted in the book: Africa in Global International Relations: Emerging Approaches to Theory and Practice (Routledge 2015).
