Can international education contribute to conflict resolution and to global understanding?

This will be the major question addressed at a public panel event to be held on Thursday, 19 November 2009, at 3PM in the Eggers Events Room of the Maxwell School. The event, titled "Communities in Conflict: International Education and the Quest for Global Understanding", is part of the International Education Week at Syracuse University.

It is co-organized by Elane Granger, Associate Director of the Slutzker Center for International Services, and by Nimrod Goren, a Hubert Humphrey Fellow from Israel at the Maxwell School.

Conceptual perceptions and personal experiences will be shared by an international panel comprised of Elizabeth Cardona Badiab (USA), Nati Katz (Israel), Mohammed Koni (West Bank), Mahdee Sanglakhee (Afghanistan) and Simpson Snoh (Liberia) and Lobna Cherif (Tunisia).

Prof. Bruce Dayton from the Moynihan Institute of Public Affairs and Nimrod Goren will discuss the insights raised by the panel, and will lead an open discussion with the audience. All are welcome to attend.

Lobna Cherif (Tunisia) will also be participating in the panel.
