The U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan raises important questions about the meaning of peacekeeping and peacebuilding in the 21st century. There is a panel discussion today (4:30 p.m. in Old Main 115 at USU and on Zoom) called “The Afghanistan Crisis: The Challenges of Peacekeeping and Peacebuilding.”

This is sponsored by the new USU Global Peacebuilding Certificate and the USU CHaSS Tanner Talks. We’ll talk today with one of the panelists, Danielle Ross, USU Associate Professor of History. We’ll also talk with two of the leaders of the new certificate program Patrick Mason, Leonard J. Arrington Chair of Mormon History and Culture;  and Colin Flint, Distinguished Professor of Political Geography in the Department of Political Science at Utah State University.
