U.Va. Lecture Series Explores Peace Efforts In Global Hot Spots

February 7, 2002-- Ambassador Dennis Ross, the chief American negotiator in the Middle East during the previous Bush and Clinton administrations, is one of the headline speakers in a hard-hitting lecture series on war and peace to be held this spring at the University of Virginia. Ross will speak April 23 on "Waging the War on Terror and Pursuing Peace in the Middle East."

Philip Zelikow, director of the Miller Center, will lead off the program next week, Feb. 12, with a talk on "Decision-Making in the Cuban Missile Crisis."

Other speakers include Maleeha Lodhi, the Pakistan ambassador to the United States, who will discuss the future of the Pakistan-India relationship April 25, and Samantha Power of Harvard University's Carr Center for Human Rights, discussing her new book on the Rwanda genocide.

All the talks are free and open to the public. They all will be held at 7 p.m. in Minor Hall, except for Lodhi’s talk, which will be at 3:30 p.m. in Wilson Hall.

The program is sponsored by the International Residential College, the Department of Politics, the Arts and Sciences Council, and the International Relations Organization.
