Binghamton University panel to discuss the Darfur Crisis


        Binghamton University will host a panel discussion titled, “The Darfur Crisis: Morality, Policy and Reality,” at 7 p.m. Thursday, March 29, in room 149 of the Science 1 building on the University campus. The discussion is free and open to the public.

       Panelists include Binghamton University professor Ali Mazrui, recognized as one of the world’s top 100 intellectuals, and Daowd Salih, co-founder of the Save Darfur Coalition.  Also joining the panel will be Reverend Douglas Taylor from the Unitarian Universalist Congregation Church of Binghamton, and Gloria Lomodong, a Binghamton University Master of Public Administration degree candidate.  David Campbell, assistant professor in the department of public administration, will serve as the panel’s moderator.

       Darfur, the western region of the Republic of Sudan, has been in turmoil since 2003.  The militant group, Janjaweed, is accused of partnering with the Sudanese government to commit ethnic cleansing against Darfur’s people.  Over two million residents have been displaced as a result of the conflict.

       The discussion is sponsored by the Binghamton University Master of Public Administration Graduate Student Organization.
