by Kari Hamende
Gerald Gulley Talk
United States Institute of Peace
This event is supported by the U.S. Institute of Peace Public Education Peacebuilding Support initiative.
Water resources are projected to become further strained in the future due to population growth and the effects of climate change. There is increasing concern by many international entities that future conflicts will be fought over water rights. 

This lecture will focus on water resource stressors and areas of the world where future potential conflicts could arise due to diminishing water supplies. Gerald Gulley, PhD, is a professor of physics at Dominican University. 

Admission is free. 

The Albertus Magnus Society of the St. Catherine of Siena Center cultivates public programming at the intersection of science and religion. The 2012-2013 theme of "Making Waves" explores the chemistry, history, spirituality and geopolitics of water with experts who unravel some of the complex ways this precious resource affects our universe, our planet, and our neighborhood. 

The March 21 event is co-hosted by the Center for Global Peace through Commerce and is supported by the U.S. Institute of Peace Public Education Peacebuilding Support initiative.
