Calestous Juma, Pew Fellow and director of the Belfer Center’s Science, Technology, and Globalization project, has been awarded the honor of the Elder of the Order of the Burning Spear (EBS) by President Mwai Kibaki of Kenya in recognition of his achievements and distinguished service to the nation.
