Victor is an academic philosopher and political theorist. My major research interest includes Postcolonial African philosophy, global political theory, intercultural philosophy, applied logic and normative ethics. I have presented invited academic lectures on topical issues in these areas and related subjects in conferences and workshops. I have also published my opinions in reputable academic platforms. My peer-reviewed publications (articles and chapters in reputable journals and edited books) attempt to interrogate and (re)conceptualize articulate perspectives on right conduct and human flourishing in a complex world using ideas in African philosophy as a focal point of departure. I hope that I will learn more about my research interest as a member of this reputed network.

The massacre in rural Elaine, Arkansas was one of the most violent episodes of 1919's Red Summer of racist confrontations, but it also remains one of the least-known. In this talk with historian Ted Widmer, Penn State's Professor Nan Woodruff explains the causes and how it fits in to the post-World War I context. Why are people still reluctant to speak about this massacre? How should we remember this dark chapter in American history?
Carnegie Council Senior Fellow Jean-Marie Guéhenno, former head of United Nations peacekeeping operations, discusses the tensions between the individual and the collective in a world filled with political tension, pervasive surveillance, and fear of risk. What is the role of the UN in this environment? How can we avoid the violent upheavals that marked other transitional phases in humanity?
A Russian defense news site declared the United States an "unreliable ally" after the the withdrawal of American troops from Northern Syria. Senior Fellow Nikolas Gvosdev connects this characterization to the need for leaders to connect a specific policy action to a larger, understandable narrative for the American public.
