Event Details

Civil war in Sudan has plagued the country for over a decade. Specifically, violence in the western region of Darfur gained international attention as Arab militia groups and the Sudanese government carried out brutal attacks against ethnic Africans. The first to blow the whistle on genocide in Darfur, Mukesh Kapila, will tell his story of Sudan with the backdrop of his own veteran experience working in the humanitarian crises of Rwanda, Bosnia, Afghanistan and Sierra Leone. Mukesh Kapila is a medical doctor, humanitarian expert and international aid diplomat. Currently a professor at the University of Manchester, he has experience in over 130 countries serving in senior positions in the British Government, the United Nations, the World Health Organization and the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies. He focuses on the prevention of genocide and the other most horrible crimes against humanity as special representative of the Aegis Trust. This program is presented in partnership with the Pacific McGeorge School of Law and the San Francisco Bay Area Darfur Coalition.

SPEAKER:

Mukesh Kapila
Professor of Global Health and Humanitarian Affairs, University of Manchester; former United Nations Resident and Humanitarian Coordinator for Sudan
