Event description

Description

In the wake of a disaster, diaspora’s involvement is invaluable. Many times they offer material and cash assistance. As we look at rebuilding societies, the diaspora also continues to be key in offering relative and necessary support. Take part in this event showcasing various ways the diaspora can offer assistance to their home societies through in-kind donations and community owned dialogue and reconciliation. Barlin Ali, Dr. Khadijo and Dr. Yusuf Omar and Safiya Khalid will present various approaches to bring peace to societies anchored in culture.

Barlin Ali is the Program Coordinator for USAID (United States Agency for International Development) – Center for International Disaster Information.

Dr. Yusuf Omar holds a PhD from La Troube University, Melbourne, Australia in refugee studies. He and Dr. Khadijo have been working alongside universities in the Somali regions to increase peace capacity building process. Their work is strongly anchored in community based open dialogue
