Environmental Strategies for Peace and Nation Building, Jul 15

In many parts of the world, rapid changes are occurring in both governance and the state of the environment. From social movements mobilized around environmental issues, to large scale migrations driven by resource degradation, to international efforts to develop technologies for climate change adaptation, never before have the connections between environmental resources, peace, and stability been so striking and critical.

On July 15, 2013, a panel of faculty experts and international practitioners will discuss how environmental issues are creating both challenges and opportunities for peace and nation building across the world. The panel is being held as part of the Beahrs Environmental Leadership Program, a three-week intensive course in the College of Natural Resources for international environmental professionals. The panel will consist of:

• Rida Sherif. Faculty and Department Head, Dept. of Natural Resources, University of Tripoli, Libya.

• Dana Rassas. Cultural Affairs Specialist, American Consulate General, Jerusalem (Palestine)

• Kate O’Neill. Professor of Environmental Science Policy and Management, UC Berkeley.

• Martha Saavedra. Associate Director, Center for African Studies, UC Berkeley.

• George Breslauer (moderator). Professor of Political Science and Executive Vice Chancellor, UC Berkeley.
