Conflict Minerals in DRC: A Film and Q & A

April 21, 2016 at 6:30 PM

Location:2017 Dunton Tower

Film screening and expert Q & A on conflict minerals in Democratic Republic of Congo

We Will Win Peace goes behind the scenes of humanitarian advocacy and activism in the United States – via the forests and mines of the eastern Congo – to reveal the limits of good intentions, in an unexpected story that follows the lives of two Congolese miners as they react to the competing pressures placed upon them by Hollywood celebrities, rebel soldiers, student activists, and, ultimately, their own families.

Film screening of We Will Win Peace followed by Q & A with Prof. Doris Buss and Gisèle Eva Côté (Partnership Africa Canada).

Co-organized by Partnership Africa Canada and the Institute of African Studies.
