Humphrey Fellows to host global forum

The Hubert Humphrey Fellowship Global Forum will take place from 1 to 5 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 1, at the International House, Davis, 10 College Park.

The Humphrey Program brings accomplished mid-career professionals from designated countries in Africa, Asia, Latin America, the Caribbean, the Middle East and Eurasia to the United States for a year of non-degree graduate study and related professional experience.
The forum features 16 speakers from 13 countries: Nigeria, Mali, Haiti, Senegal, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Ethiopia, Nicaragua, Albania, Nepal, Afghanistan, Brazil, Mongolia and Egypt. Three of the Fellows (from Iraq, Pakistan and Burkina Faso) have already reported to their next universities and will not be joining the forum.

The fields of interest of this year’s students include substance abuse education, treatment and prevention; finance and banking; economic development; natural resources, environmental policy and climate change; public policy analysis and public administration; law and human rights; agriculture and rural development; teaching English as a foreign language; communications and journalism; public health policy and management; educational administration, planning and policy; and higher education administration. Topics to be presented include: “Insecurity in Northern Mali: When Al Qaida Strikes the City of 333 Saints (Timbuktu)”; “Child Labor in the Agricultural Sector in Pakistan: Save the Children”; “Cervical Cancer Rates Among Mongolian Women: Three Shots Can Save Your Life.”
Eighteen additional Humphrey Fellows will speak at a second Global Forum at the Bowley Conference Room 101 on the UC Davis campus from 1 to 5 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 7.

Both events are free and open to the public. Refreshments and light snacks will be served.
