Water, Justice and Rights: Conflict and Peacebuilding in a Changing Climate

This virtual event is part of the Gilman Climate Leaders Seminar Series (March 24 - May 12), designed by the Nicholas Institute for Environmental Policy Solutions and Duke University Energy Initiative and funded by the U.S. Department of State. The interdisciplinary series aims to enhance attendees' understanding of the climate crisis-including its social, political, and economic impacts-through a foreign policy lens. Featured speakers include Duke University faculty as well as other prominent scholars and professionals. The seventh seminar in the series will feature insights from Erika Weinthal (Duke University) on the role water has played in Central Asian/Middle Eastern conflicts, and how that role might grow through climate change. The first seven seminars in the series are open to students at all U.S. colleges and universities as well as to the Duke community, including students, alumni, faculty, and staff. An eighth seminar will be offered exclusively to students and alumni of the Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholars Program. Learn more and register:
