Mulu Sendek, a researcher and lecturer in law at Ethiopian Civil Service College, will speak on “African Union: Finally a Reality?” 12:15 p.m. today in the Kirby Hall of Civil Rights Council Room (206).

Beverages will be provided for the talk, which is sponsored by the Robert B. and Helen S. Meyner Center for the Study of State and Local Government.

Sendek is a researcher at the Institute of Federal and Regional Government Studies at the Ethiopian Civil Service College in Addis Abba. Prior to the rise of the current democratic government in 1991, he spent 17 years in the bush as a guerrilla fighter against the dictatorial Mengistu regime, becoming a prominent official of the Ethiopian People’s Revolutionary Democratic Front. He has been actively involved in efforts to build the African Union, for which Addis Abba would likely be the headquarters city.

The major goal of Ethiopian Civil Service College as stipulated in its new training direction is the “transfer of knowledge and skills through short-term training, specialized educational programs, the conduct of applied research and the provision of consultancy work in the civil service.”
