Event Description
Emmanuel Kreike, PhD (Princeton) addresses the 1960s-1990s southern African decolonization/ liberation/ counterinsurgency wars, the massive population displacement they caused, and draws the connection to the environmental, health, economic, and food production crises that paralyze southern Africa today. Focusing on the border region of Angola and Namibia where the larger part of South Africa’s security forces were deployed during the prolonged conflict, the paper shows that the environ-cidal nature of the war itself reduced the countryside into deserted bushlands.

Nick Kapur, PhD (Rutgers University, Camden) considers the trajectory of China's embrace of these norms against the backdrop of China's severe environmental problems at home and a global context of growing concern about global warming. If China were to move beyond rhetoric and begin taking more concrete steps to exercise international environmental leadership, what might this mean for China's and the world's economy, and for the battle to limit the ravages of global warming.
