The 27th Annual Norris and Margery Bendetson EPIIC International Symposium:
Conflict in the 21st Century

And the First Annual Tufts Pugwash Chapter Discussion

February 22, 2012 - February 26, 2012

Dedication: Tim Hetherington (1970-2011)

“Tim Hetherington was much more than a war reporter.  He had an extraordinary talent for documenting, in compassionate and beautiful imagery, the human stories behind the headlines… His work has raised the visibility of many of the world’s forgotten conflicts.”  -- Kenneth Roth, executive director of Human Rights Watch; IGL Dr. Jean Mayer Global Citizenship Award recipient, 2004

EPIIC this year is dedicated to the brilliant British photographer and film-maker, Tim Hetherington, a Board member of the Institute’s Program on Narrative and Documentary Practice. He was killed while covering the war in Libya on April 20, 2011. Hetherington reproted on many of the world’s most critical human rights stories: conflicts in Liberia, Afghanistan, Darfur, and Libya. The IGL will be collaborating with Human Rights Watch.
