Five years ago, the United Nations embarked upon a new experiment to support weak post-conflict countries as they transition into more stable societies. From reintegrating ex-rebels to laying the groundwork for elections, from brokering security sector reform to broadening development, the UN Peacebuilding Commission looks at it all. Pulitzer Center journalist Jina Moore discusses her investigations on the impact of the Commission on the people who are supposed to benefit from the new peace in Guinea Bissau, Burundi, Sierra Leone and Central African Republic. Does peace finally have a chance?<br>

The event will be held at 5:30 PM in Conference Room 4003 of the FedEx Global Education Center.
