Students from George Mason’s Institute for Conflict Analysis and Resolution’s International Criminal Court project will host a Washington, D.C., area town hall meeting on ”Africa and Beyond: The Role of the International Criminal Court and the United States,“ on Tuesday, Feb. 21, from noon to 2 p.m. on the Arlington Campus.

The meeting will be held in the Truland Building, Room 555. The event is free and open to the public, and refreshments will be served.

The town hall will allow students at George Mason and members of the Washington, D.C., community to begin a conversation about reform to the United Nations and the repercussions for the security, health and well-being of countries around the world. There will be presentations from top experts from the area. Following these presentations, members of the community will have the opportunity to ask the speakers questions or make brief comments.

This town hall is part of a broader national initiative called “Global Governance for a Changing World,” which includes dozens of town hall meetings throughout the United States that are raising awareness about the future of international institutions in a rapidly globalizing world. The series also includes a videoconference dialogue between students across the United States and around the world.

The series is sponsored by Americans for Informed Democracy, a nonpartisan educational organization that seeks to engage Americans in discussion about their country’s role in the world.
