Ratolojanahary served his country in several cabinet-level posts and was on a diplomatic mission to the United States in March of 2009 when the military staged the coup which overthrew the democratically elected government. He has not been able to return to his home in Madagascar. He is teaching a course titled “The Politics of Modern Africa.” The course will be offered in subsequent semesters as well.
