Is Regional Integration in the Nile Basin Possible? The Water-Energy-Food Nexus in Practice by Professor Harry Verhoeven

​​Professor Harry Verhoeven, Associate Professor, School of Foreign Service, Georgetown University Qatar, and Associate Member of the Department of Politics and International Relations, University of Oxford visited FAFS on Thursday, September 27 to meet faculty members and deliver a lecture entitled "Is Regional Integration in the Nile Basin Possible? The Water-Energy-Food Nexus in Practice." 

Within his lecture, Professor Verhoeven discussed the hydropolitics of the Nile Basin (Egypt, Sudan, and Ethiopia) and how the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam alters the region’s political economy. Drawing on his research in all Nile Basin riparian countries, Professor Verhoeven offered a thought-provoking lecture about the benefits of collaboration through application of the Water-Energy-Food (WEF) nexus in policy-making and the potential pitfalls of an overly simplistic understanding of regional integration that may fail to do so. His lecture then opened the floor for a wide range of questions from the audience. ​​
