Johan Galtung

Join us at the Fireplace Lounge in Scandling for a special Fridays at the Scandling Cafe.  Starting at 10:00am international Peace Studies scholar Johan Galtung will join us for an interview, broadcast live on WHWS.   Come over to Scandling to ask questions!

This interview is arranged through the HWS International Student Association’s Global Egalitarian Initiative, with special thanks to Martin Michaels.

(Galtung will also deliver a talk on Overcoming Structural Violence through Revolution in Arab Countries at 5 pm on Thursday April 7th in the Geneva Room of the HWS Library.  Structural violence is a term first used in the 1960s commonly ascribed to Galtung; it refers to a form of violence based on the systemic ways in which a given social structure harms people by preventing them from meeting their basic needs.)
