Justice and Peace Studies Program sponsors round table discussion of Pakistan

The Justice and Peace Studies Program at St. Thomas is sponsoring a round table discussion of Pakistan on Tuesday, June 16.

The program, free and open to the public, will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. in Room 155, Murray-Herrick Campus Center on the university's St. Paul campus.

Participants will include:

  • Manju Parikh, political science professor at the College of St. Benedict, recently returned from a year’s sabbatical in India and Pakistan.
  • Roger Prestwich, business professor for Metro State University and president of the Twin Cities chapter of the American Committees on Foreign Relations.
  • Tom Hanson, a retired State Department foreign service officer of 22 years who also served on the staffs for the Committees on Foreign Relations of the U.S. House and Senate.
  • William Davnie, a 25-year veteran of the foreign service and former Presbyterian minister.
  • Joseph Schwartzberg, an emeritus geography professor at the University of Minnesota and member of a national “Kashmir Project,” which focuses on this disputed territory (and occasional war zone) between Pakistan and India.

The participants have been watching developments in Pakistan closely and will bring diverse perspectives to bear on the complex problems and political dynamics of South Asia.
