The African Diaspora can provide resources to help Africa as it works to improve good governance, according to Dr. James Braxton Peterson, Director, Africana Studies at Lehigh University in the United States told UN Radio recently.

Dr. Peterson participated in a recent United Nations meeting on the African Peer Review Mechanism (APRM), adopted by African leaders in 2003.

The main objective of the APRM is to enhance implementation of the New Partnership for Africa's Development by good governance standards including in the economic and political fields.

UN Radio's Donn Bobb caught up with Dr. Peterson who first described his work.
