The Global Citizenship in the News Discussion series presents, The Philippines: What Will Recovery Look Like?

We are just beginning to understand the scope and scale of damage in the wake of typhoon Haiyan that struck the Philippines on November 7th. How can we gain perspective on this tragedy? What should be on our minds as we watch relief efforts unfold? What lessons might we learn from Hurricane Katrina and the Haitian earthquake as the Philippines looks toward rebuilding? Join us for conversation in which we put typhoon Haiyan in global perspective and consider the path ahead. 

Panelists include:

  • Cecilia Martinez-Miranda, ‘13
  • Karin Aguilar-San Juan, American Studies (via Skype from the Philippines)
  • Eric Carter, Geography
  • Ruth Janisch Lake, Civic Engagement Center
  • Joëlle Vitiello, French and Francophone Studies
