Faculty note: Prof. Morgan presented paper at the University of Texas at Austin

Eric J. Morgan (Associate Prof., Democracy and Justice Studies, History, and Global Studies) presented a paper, “The World’s Worst Humanitarian Crisis in a Generation”: The United States, the Rwandan Civil War, and the Dilemma of Humanitarian Intervention in the Post-Cold War World,” at the recent conference on Civil War and Intervention: U.S. Foreign Policy in International Perspective, hosted by the Clements Center for National Security at the University of Texas at Austin.

Morgan’s paper examines the Clinton administration’s response to the 1994 genocide, particularly the Operation Support Hope mission to aid refugees in the wake of the genocide’s end. The conference’s essays will be collected in a volume co-edited by Fredrik Logevall, who won the 2013 Pulitzer Prize in History for his book, Embers of War: The Fall of an Empire and the Making of America’s Vietnam.
