New World University Announces Partnership with 'Sub-Saharan Monitor'

Africa News Aggregator Now Hosted on Dominica-Based Academic Web Site

Sub-Saharan Monitor, an African news aggregator, will now be published on the web site of New World University, which is based in Roseau, the capital city of the Commonwealth of Dominica.

New World University educates students through distance learning and partner organisations, building upon the resources of its Free Curricula Centre, which promotes the development of open educational resources as a way to approach one the most significant costs for tertiary students. With “brick and mortar” learning centre partners in India, Nigeria, and Rwanda, and with independent study available worldwide, New World University currently offers a bachelor's degree programme in international business leadership and will soon be launching degree programs in information systems, development studies, and professional studies.

Sub-Saharan Monitor began in the early 1990s as a print newsletter published by the International Freedom Foundation (IFF). That newsletter was edited by IFF's director of African affairs, Richard Sincere. In its newest incarnation, launched in April 2014, Sub-Saharan Monitor is a news aggregator with an aim to become a provider of original reporting and content for readers interested in events and trends in Africa south of the Sahara. Emphasis is on economic and business news with an appropriate admixture of information about politics and culture. In keeping with the educational mission of its host, New World University, book reviews will be featured prominently on Sub-Saharan Monitor.

The publication's editor-in-chief, Richard Sincere, is a senior research fellow at New World University, based in Charlottesville, Virginia, and Washington, D.C. He is the author of two books, The Politics of Sentiment: Churches and Foreign Investment in South Africa (1984) and Sowing the Seeds of Free Enterprise: The Politics of U.S. Aid in Africa (1990), as well as co-editor (with Zbigniew Brzezinski, Marin Strmecki, and Peter Wehner) of Promise or Peril: The Strategic Defense Initiative (1986). His articles and reviews have appeared in the Chicago Tribune, Houston Chronicle, Richmond Times-Dispatch, Wall Street Journal, Washington Examiner, Washington Star, Washington Times, and various other publications.

“We welcome Sub-Saharan Monitor to New World University as an addition to our academic and research programmes,” said Stephen H. Foerster, the university's president. “Highlighting cultural, economic, and political news from Africa in an accessible manner fits precisely in our mission to provide innovative and exciting educational opportunities in developing nations.”
