Discussion planned on 'Guns and Charity,' March 25
Posted March 24, 2004; 09:13 a.m.
A panel discussion on "Guns and Charity: Civil-Military Relations in Humanitarian Operations" is scheduled for 4:30 p.m. Thursday, March 25, in 302 Frist.
Participants will explore the relationship between humanitarian relief organizations and the military. Panelists will include: John Weiss, professor of modern European history at Cornell University; Erin Ferencheck, director of Princeton-in-Africa; and Lt. Col. Matthew McCarville, commander of Princeton ROTC.
They will explore the increasing need for military protection for humanitarian efforts around the world, and the sometimes uneasy partnership that exists between such groups. The panel will focus on how this relationship plays out on the ground level and how these experiences can lead to policy changes that will create a more effective partnership between humanitarian aid and military organizations.
