Clark convenes ‘Informed Activism’ this weekend

This weekend, more than 1,000 students, scholars, policy-makers, activists and representatives from non-governmental organizations are scheduled to gather at Clark University in Worcester, Mass., for a unique international summit, Informed Activism: Armed Conflict, Scarce Resources and Congo.

Clark’s Strassler Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies has joined with Jewish World Watch to host this conference to address the relationship between mass violence and “conflict minerals” in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

The conference will also see the debut of a photographic essay by Michael Ramsdell, “Power, Prosperity and Hope in Eastern Congo.”
