Reception in honour of Professor Shireen Hassim

The South African High Commission has enjoyed a beautiful working relationship with the Institute for African studies (IAS) at Carleton University. The news of the passing away of its founding Director the late Professor Pius Adesanmi left the High Commission deeply saddened.

Our relationship with the IAS was further strengthened when Professor Shireen Hassim, a South African joined the IAS as Canada 150 Research Chair in Gender and African Politics. The South African High Commissioned partnered with IAS and hosted a reception to welcome Professor Hassim.
