Adryan Wallace, assistant professor in the Department of Africana Studies in the College of Arts and Sciences, was recently selected by the United Nations Office of the Special Adviser on Africa (OSAA) to present at an upcoming conference on “Africa’s fiscal space, fragility, and conflict.”
Wallace, who also has affiliations in the departments of Political Science and Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies, will present a paper with policy recommendations to representatives of member states and UN entities. Her paper will also appear in a UN-OSAA publication of policies that can be implemented by UN offices and relevant heads of state. The UN-OSAA’s goals include promoting efforts by African countries and development partners to improve the fiscal space for sustainable growth, avoiding the worsening of fragility, and preventing conflict on the continent.
Wallace, who holds a PhD in Political Science, an MA in African Studies, and a BS in Psychology, conducts research that combines quantitative and qualitative methods to examine the interactions among gender equality, state fragility, and regional economic integration in Africa. She has served as a member on previous policy panels for the UN and for the U.S. State Department’s U.S. – Africa Leaders’ Summit for the Obama Administration, as well as a delegate during a meeting with the chair of the African Union, His Excellency Moussa Fake Mahamat, at the African Union Representational Mission to the U.S. in Washington, D.C.
The majority of Wallace’s work focuses on how Muslim women in West Africa are able to articulate their development interests within the context of Sharia law and secular political institutions. Her current book project analyzes the ways that Hausa women in Kano, Nigeria and Tamale, Ghana, use their non-governmental (NGO) and community-based organizations (CBOs) to challenge the economic roles ascribed to them by the state and to mobilize politically around gender issues.
