Book Talk: The Butcher's Trail: How the Search for Balkan War Criminals Became the World's Most Successful Manhunt, by Julian Borger

Date:February 09, 2016 from 12:00 pm to 1:30 pm EST
Location:Columbia University
Morningside Campus
International Affairs Building
Room 1219
Contact:For further information regarding this event, please contact Joseph Maberry by sending email to jtm2170@columbia.edu .
Info:Click Here to Visit Website.

The gripping, untold story of the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia and how the perpetrators of Balkan war crimes were captured by the most successful manhunt in history. Written with a thrilling narrative pull, The Butcher's Trail chronicles the pursuit and capture of the Balkan war criminals indicted by the Interna­tional Criminal Tribunal (ICTY) in The Hague. Borger recounts how Radovan Karadzic and Ratko Mladic were finally tracked down and put on trial in The Hague, and describes the intrigue behind the arrest of Slobodan Milosevic, the Yugoslav president who became the first head of state to stand before an international tribunal for crimes perpetrated in a time of war. Based on interviews with former special forces soldiers, intelligence officials, and investigators from a dozen countries—most speaking about their involvement for the first time—this book reconstructs a fourteen-year manhunt carried out almost entirely in secret. Indicting the worst war criminals that Europe had known since the Nazi era, the ICTY ultimately accounted for all 161 suspects on its wanted list, a feat never before achieved in political and military history. Julian Borger is the diplomatic editor for The Guardian. He covered the Bosnian War for the BBC and The Guardian, and returned to the Balkans to report on the Kosovo conflict in 1999. He also served as The Guardian's Middle East correspondent and its Washington bureau chief. Borger was part of the Guardian team that won the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for public service journalism for its coverage of the Snowden files on mass surveillance. He was on the team awarded the 2013 Investigative Reporters and Editors (IRE) medal and the Paul Foot Special Investigation Award in the UK.
This event will be sponsored by the Columbia Graduate School of Journalism.

Resilient Children/Resilient Communities National Survey Data Release Webinar

Date:
Tuesday, February 9, 2016 from 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm

Location:
Online, YouTube Live Stream

Contact:
Earth Institute Events, events@ei.columbia.edu

Event Description:
Speakers: Jeff Schlegelmilch, Deputy Director, National Center for Disaster Preparedness, The Earth Institute, Columbia University; Dr. Elisaveta Petkova, Project Director, National Center for Disaster Preparedness, The Earth Institute, Columbia University; Erin Bradshaw, Senior Director, Strategic Impact, Save the Children USA

The Earth Institute's National Center for Disaster Preparedness (NCDP) and Save the Children present "American Households not Prepared for Disasters nor Confident Children's Needs will be Met," a LIVE WEBINAR to present study results and provide recommendations based on the work of the Resilient Children/Resilient Communities Initiative.

The United States is experiencing a continuous increase in the number of extreme weather events, and 10 years after Hurricane Katrina and three years after Superstorm Sandy, the vast majority of Americans remain unprepared for major disasters, according to results from a National Center for Disaster Preparedness (NCDP) research study.

A community’s resilience and ability to rebound from a crisis can be measured by its ability to care for its children, who are one of the most vulnerable populations in an emergency. And many communities, systems and child-serving institutions are not sufficiently prepared to meet the needs of children when a crisis strikes. And many parents are not confident that their children will be protected and are not aware of what plans schools have made to be sure that children are safe in case of a catastrophic event in their community.

To join the webinar, launch the live YouTube stream here. To participate in the live chat, use your Google or YouTube credentials, or join the conversation on Twitter using the #safekids hashtag.

"Human Rights Connectivity and the Future of the Human Rights System"

This year marks the 50th Anniversary of two Covenants that form the backbone of the international human rights system, making it an opportune time to reflect on the current and future state of the global regime of human rights protection. The early post-World War II period marked the era of internationalization and universalization of human rights. This period was followed by the age of institutionalization, in which the critical architecture of modern human rights institutions was created. We now are entering the era of human rights connectivity, in which strengthening connections between distinct but related normative regimes, and building relations among human rights institutions and with governments, civil society and other actors, including through the use of modern technology, has become imperative to the future development of the human rights system. An expert member of the UN Human Rights Committee and the Venice Commission of the Council of Europe, Professor Cleveland will explore this evolution, the implications for the current and future of human rights oversight, and the role that universities can play in enhancing the effectiveness of the modern human rights system.

The lecture will be followed by a question and answer session with the audience.

There will be a reception immediately following the lecture.

The Middle East and The Arab Spring: Where Are We Now and Why?

Date:February 10, 2016 from 12:10 pm to 1:10 pm EST
Location:Morningside Campus,
Columbia University,
Jerome Greene Hall, Room 105
Contact:For further information regarding this event, please contact Randi Aho by sending email to randi.aho@law.columbia.edu .

Please join us for a discussion with Ambassador Ahmed Fathalla regarding the current prospects for the Arab Spring and the future of human rights. Arab states before the 2010 Arab Spring suffered on three levels: political, economic, and social. Politically, undemocratic regimes were in control for decades. This led to economic deterioration, deepening of corruption and inequitable distribution of income and wealth. Social injustice thus became a fact of life. The Arab Spring promised to be a starting point for real reforms and societal adjustments.  Unfortunately new challenges and developments in the last five years on the national, regional, and international levels -- particularly relating to security, stability, and societal harmonization -- have posed real obstacles to achieving these goals, leading in some cases to slower reforms, and in others to a total setback.

A Conversation with Mohamed El-Erian on The Only Game in Town: Central Banks, Instability, and Avoiding the Next Collapse

Mohamed A. El-Erian is chief economic advisor at Allianz, the corporate parent of PIMCO, where he served as CEO and co-CIO, and chair of President Obama's Global Development Council. Author of the bestselling When Markets Collide, El-Erian is a columnist for Bloomberg View and a Financial Times contributing editor. He was named to Foreign Policy's list of Top 100 Global Thinkers for four consecutive years (2009-2012), and named by that journal as one of the 500 most powerful people on the planet in 2013.

In his new book, The Only Game in Town, El-Erian explains how and why our central banks became the essential, if not only, policymakers in the global economy, and why this role is increasingly unsustainable.

Introduction by Richard Clarida, C. Lowell Harriss Professor of Economics and Professor of International and Public Affairs

Moderated by Patricia Mosser, Senior Research Scholar and Director, Initiative on Central Banking, Columbia SIPA

Net Neutrality: The Battle in India

RSVP: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/talk-on-the-net-neutrality-battle-in-india-tickets-21356153831 

WHEN: Wednesday, February 10, 2015, 4:00-5:00pm.

WHO: Nikhil Pahwa, Editor & Publisher, MediaNama, and leader of the citizen’s movement in India to save net neutrality

WHAT: A talk on how and why the fight in India to save net neutrality began, why it is important for India, and what it has achieved. Pahwa will explore the choices that a developing country like India has to make in order to bring people online, and why Facebook's Free Basics has received such significant opposition in the country.

There will be a Q&A session, moderated by Computer Science Professor Vishal Misra, a leading researcher on net neutrality who has advised the citizen’s movement in India on technical matters.

BACKGROUND: India has the second highest Internet user base in the world but close to a billion people are still offline. In the heated debate over how best to increase web access, Facebook threw its weight behind Free Basics, a service that lets people access certain websites and online services without paying data charges. But in giving competitive advantages to some websites and not others, Free Basics violates the principle of net neutrality. To rally support for net neutrality and oppose Free Basics, Internet and consumer activists, led by Nikhil Pahwa, formed a coalition in March 2015.

In response, over a million responses were sent to regulators: a first in the history of India.

WHERE: Davis Auditorium, CEPSR Columbia University, Morningside Heights campus Broadway at West 116th Street, Manhattan

CUSP Speaker Series: Kartik Chandran | Engineered Resource Recovery for Sustainable Urban Development

Location:Columbia University

Join the Columbia College Alumni Association and the Columbia Undergraduate Scholars Program for the next CUSP Speaker Series lecture featuring Kartik Chandran. This is a unique opportunity for College alumni to join into a session with current students. Space is limited and the program is free.

 

Water reuse and recycling offer a resource and energy efficient alternate to continued water mining for meeting potable and non-potable demands. By some accounts, untreated sewage streams contain about an order of magnitude higher resources and energy compared to the resources invested to ‘treat’ them to receiving water quality standards. Accordingly, a newer model of extracting resources and energy from ‘polluted’ water streams could act as a platform not just to attain the requisite water quality objectives, but also to do so at a lower resource and energy footprint. In this presentation, the prospect of employing engineered resource recovery to drive water reuse and recycling is presented along with some considerations of the fate and transport of emerging chemical contaminants.

 

About the Speaker:

Kartik Chandran is Associate Professor and Director of the Wastewater Treatment and Climate Change and CUBES programs at Columbia University. His work focuses on the sustainable management and re-engineering of the global N-cycle along with its links to the water, energy and carbon cycles. Prof. Chandran has pioneered the direction of characterizing and mitigating nitrogenous greenhouse gas emissions from wastewater treatment facilities nationwide and globally. He also leads the Mainstream Deammonification track of the USEPA-WERF National Center on Nutrient Management. Some recent efforts of his group include engineered resource recovery from ‘waste’ streams through flexible biological platforms for carbon cycling. Select awards and honors received by Prof. Chandran include an invited professorship from the Royal Dutch Academy of Arts and Sciences (2014), induction as fellow of WEF (2013), WERF Paul Busch award (2010), NSF CAREER award (2009) and a NRC-NAS Faculty Fellow (2007).

Organized by the School of the Arts and Office of University Life Film screening followed by a talk with the director, Ramin Bahrani '96CC and Nobel Prize-winning economist and University Professor, Joseph Stiglitz. About the film: “In this timely thriller, charismatic and ruthless businessman, Rick Carver (Academy nominee Michael Shannon), is making a killing by repossessing homes—gaming the real estate market, Wall Street banks and the US government. When he evicts Dennis Nash (Golden Globe nominee Andrew Garfield), a single father trying to care for his mother (Academy Award nominee Laura Dern) and young son (newcomer Noah Lomax), Nash becomes so desperate to provide for his family that he goes to work for Carver—the very man who evicted him in the first place. Carver promises Nash a way to regain his home and earn security for his family, but slyly seduces him into a lifestyle of wealth and glamour. It is a deal-with-the-devil that comes with an increasingly high cost—on Carver's orders, Nash must evict families from their homes. As Nash falls deeper into Carver's web, he finds his situation grows more brutal and dangerous than he ever imagined.”
