“Global Humanitarian Demining: Promoting Public-Private Partnerships” is the title of the Institute for Conflict Analysis and Resolution’s (ICAR) brown bag lecture today from noon to 1:30 p.m.

Speaking at the lecture are two staff members from the Office of the Special Representative for Global Humanitarian Demining. James F. Lawrence is the office’s director of partnership programs and David J. Rabadan is the director of multilateral programs.

The Office of the Special Representative for Global Humanitarian Demining was established in October 1997 after Secretary of State Madeleine Albright and Secretary of Defense William Cohen announced President Clinton’s Demining 2010 Initiative. The office coordinates and leads the implementation of this effort, which according to the language of the initiative, has the goal of “end[ing] the plague of landmines by 2010.”

The discussion is held in ICAR’s main conference room, A401, which is located at 4260 Chain Bridge Road in Fairfax City.
