Panel to discuss NGO intervention in developing world

A video calling for the arrest of fugitive Ugandan warlord Joseph Kony ignited unprecedented backlash and counter-backlash and in the process generated a reported 100 million views on the Web site of the sponsoring organization, Invisible Children.

A panel will discuss intervention by non-governmental organizations in third world countries, with a focus on the issues raised by the Kony 2012 video, Wednesday, April 4, at 5:30 p.m. in room 203, Toldo Health Education Centre.

The panellists include:

  • Jean-Claude Mugisho, an Engineers Without Borders executive from Uganda;
  • Katelyn Murray, an international development activist who worked in Uganda and several other African countries last year and met with former child soldiers;
  • Dane Macri, who spent last summer Northern Uganda working with Invisible Children teaching former child soldiers;
  • Dan Brown, a United Nations World Food Program intern.

The event, organized by the University of Windsor chapter of Engineers Without Borders, is free and open to the public. Learn more on the Facebook event page.
