Event Details

Since World War II, millions of people living in developing countries have died in interstate and civil wars. However, many more people have died from outbreaks of disease that resulted from conflict than actually were killed by the violence. For example, in the recent Second Congo War and subsequent, ongoing Kivu Conflict, as many as 98.4 percent of all “unnatural” deaths have been the result of disease and famine rather than directly by war. The links between conflict and elevated non-combat death tolls are varied, but include the destruction of sanitary infrastructure, the stress of mass refugee movements, and the psychological and physical damage from rape and forced conscription. This year’s conference will attempt to show how these factors combine to create deadly conditions during and after conflict. Undergraduates and graduates alike will benefit from this one-day conference intended to inform, inspire, and involve students from diverse academic backgrounds.

Join us in exploring these issues with Andrew Natsios, the Director of the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) from 2001-2005, and four expert panels of academics, NGO organizers, and government officials. The panels are:

1) Humanitarian Intervention: The Question of Sovereignty
2) The Spread of Infectious Disease in the Wake of Conflict
3) The Psychological Scars of War
4) Refuges and Refugees: Children in Conflict Zones
 

In order to make the event run as smoothly as possible, please RSVP to the panels you plan on attending.

We are excited to have eleven expert speakers, a large and talented staff, and all of you as our guests. The event will be held in Annenberg Auditorium and Building 200, Room 202 in the History Corner. We hope to see you there!
