In case you missed “Peace in Liberia, 10 Years Later” at The Carter Center, an archived version of the webcast can be viewed below.
Moderated by WABE reporter Jim Burress, panelists discuss Liberia’s progress and setbacks toward a sustainable peace after its 14-year civil war, including the impact of the Ebola crisis on recovery. The Carter Center has worked in Liberia for more than two decades, observing elections and partnering with government and civil society to strengthen democratic institutions, access to information, administration of justice, and mental health services.
The panelists included:
Dr. Pamela Scully, an Emory professor whose research and writing focuses on comparative gender history with an emphasis on biography and on sexual violence in war and post-conflict, especially in Liberia. She is writing a biography of Liberia’s president, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf.
Elwood Dunn, a scholar, diplomat, and educator who has served in several high-level capacities in the Liberian government, including as Minister of State for Presidential Affairs, Assistant Minister of Foreign Affairs, and director of the Foreign Service Institute.
Tom Crick, associate director of the Carter Center’s Conflict Resolution Program, whose most recent work has focused on peacebuilding and conflict prevention in Liberia, where he manages the Center’s innovative Access to Justice project.
