Join the Utah Council for Citizen Diplomacy for the Ambassador John Price & Marcia Price World Affairs Lecture Series. We are thrilled to welcome Ms. Colette Rausch who will explore how serious crimes – such as violent extremism, political violence, organized crime, and corruption – fuel violent conflict and thwart peace-building efforts utilizing her recently published book, Fighting Serious Crimes: Strategies and Tactics for Conflict-Affected Societies as a reference. She will discuss how fragile states with weak institutions and governance are unable to stem the tide these threats pose to peace with dangerous consequences all too evident across the globe. Ms. Rausch will answer questions including what can be done to address violent extremism and strengthen the rule of law, and how individuals can serve as peace builders in their communities.
Additionally, you are invited to join UCCD for a public meet and greet reception with Ms. Colette Rausch at 6:00 pm before the lecture begins at 7:00 pm.
This lecture is FREE and open to the public, but registration is required: https://serious-crimes.eventbrite.com
