International Order & Conflict

Coordinating Global Priorities Amidst the Financial Crisis

Achieving national security and global development objectives amidst financial austerity and national budget cuts is rightly at the forefront of our current political discourse. Doing more with less during a time of herculean challengesrealizing the Millennium Development Goals, preventing nuclear materials from falling into terrorist hands, and curbing drug, arms and human trafficking, which undermine social and economic prospects worldwidewill require innovative solutions and unprecedented collaboration between disparate and occasionally competing policy interests. Identifying nexus points between security, development, and public health capacity-building, and subsequently designing programs that benefit each simultaneously, is an increasingly necessary yet under-exploited endeavor.

Perhaps in no other part of the world is this discussion more relevant than in Eastern Africa a region plagued by myriad security threats and development challenges. Please join us for a luncheon discussion on how to better bridge the gap between security, development, and public health in Eastern Africa.
