More than 50 nations are in a state of fragility or conflict today. From Haiti to Somalia, these countries suffer from weak infrastructure, internal conflict and economic despair, often severely impacting the security and well-being of their local populations—with global consequences. Throughout the world, efforts are being made to stabilize these nations. Does peace finally have a chance?
Join the Pulitzer Center and Saint Mary's University of Minnesota for an in-depth look at these fragile nations, the peacebuilding efforts to stabilize them and a panel discussion on the local impact for Minnesota communities. Jina Moore, a Pulitzer Center grantee journalist who specializes in post-conflict and human rights reporting, is the special guest at the two evening panels moderated by Fred de Sam Lazaro, director of the Under-Told Stories Project at Saint Mary’s University and a Pulitzer Center grantee as well.
