On a Quest Towards Global Awareness

Quest_Students_and_George2

On Friday, March 25th, I presented to students in the Foundation course Global Perspectives (Peace and Security) at Quest University in Squamish, BC at the request of their professor, Walter Dorn. The focus of the presentation was a case study focusing on the role of the UN in resolving conflict and reconstructing post-conflict societies. Discussion also centered on the crucial importance of good leadership given the political challenges currently facing the world. There were many questions about careers in the humanitarian field. I was very encouraged to find students who were genuinely interested in world events and who asked thoughtful and challenging questions.
