Wednesday, April 10, noon-2 p.m. PUB NCR – Keynote: Dr. Aisha Jumaan
The EWU Political Science Department has invited Dr. Aisha Jumaan to speak on the Humanitarian Crisis in Yemen. The theme of this lecture revolves around (1) Saudis’ air-strikes and air, land, and naval blockade; (2) American bombs and logistical support for the Saudi-led coalition; and (3) the starvation of 24 out 29 million Yemenis as we speak.
As a scholar native of Yemen and the Director of Yemen Relief and Reconstruction Foundation, Dr. Jumaan has first-hand knowledge of what could be categorized as genocidal war. Given Dr. Jumman’s field experience, the lecture can provide a rare opportunity for our students to learn about the hardly mentioned plight of Yemenis. I sincerely encourage you to invite your students to attend this event. Please feel free to contact me if you have any question or suggestion. Your participation is greatly appreciated.
