Bosnia, Rwanda, Haiti, Afghanistan, Iraq, and Syria - a quarter-century of stumbles in America's pursuit of a more peaceful and just world. Amiercan military interventions have cost thousands of lives and billions of dollars, yet we rarely manage to enact positive and sustainable change. In Peace Works, ambassador and global conflict leader Rick Barton uses a mix of stories, history, and analysis for a transformative approach to foreign affairs and offers concrete and attainable solution for the future. Ambassador Rick Barton currently teaches at the Woodrow Wilson School at Princeton University, where he serves as the co-director fo Princeton's Scholars in the Nation's Service Initiatives and Ullman Fellowships. He served as American ambassador to the UN and the Deputy High Commissioner for Refugees at the UN. Aaron Williams' long and distinguished career began as a Peace Corps volunteer. He then served in USAID for 22 years. From 2009 - 2012 he served as Director of the U.S. Peace Corps.This event costs $15 and includes a buffet lunch. This event is co-hosted by DACOR & UAA.
