shameless self-promotion and you should read this
I'm speaking on the Congo twice tomorrow, both times in Georgia. Here are the details:
- Thursday, October 28 at Columbus State University at 12:30pm in the International House. I'll be giving a lecture on Conflict & Peace in the DR Congo.
- Thursday, October 28 at Emory University, I'll be on a panel about conflict minerals and the Congo sponsored by Delta Sigma Theta. It's at 7:13pm (yes, that's the right time) in White Hall room 206.
Also, you should go read Dave Algoso's piece at Foreign Policy. Dave explains (much more politely than I could have) why The Kristof's DIY aid solution is not a good idea. At all.
