Dr. Romuald K. Afatchao, Associate Director of the Martin Institute and Program in International Studies comes from Togo. He brings both professional and academic experience to the Institute; he has a law degree, an L.L.M. in environmental law and politics (both from the University of Lome in Togo), an M.A. in International Studies from the University of Limoges in France, and a Ph.D. in Environmental Science from UI. He co-founded a Togolese NGO – the National Association of Consumers and the Environment – in the late 1990s. His enthusiasm for a host of issues germane to the Martin Institute’s mission is something the Institute really benefits from, as will our students. His interests include International development, International Environmental Law and policy, climate change, poverty and development.
He lives in Moscow with his wife and young son.
