The World Affairs Council of Rhode Island is a non-profit, non-partisan organization dedicated to promoting knowledge, awareness, and understanding of the world and its people, cultures, and events.
Our mission is to give our members first hand accounts and insights about issues that transcend our borders, and a community for exchanging ideas and meeting like-minded people.
For 80 years, WACRI has brought the world to Rhode Island through our monthly Guest Speaker and Global Discussions programs, by hosting international visitors, and by promoting learning and education about world affairs.
We invite you to join WACRI, and become a part of our community of globally oriented citizens.
"Forum on Achieving Security and Stability
Nigeria has a population of 180 million people and an economy growing at twice the rate of the United States. But despite many strengths, it has been held back by political, electoral, religious, ethnic, and other forms of violence,
In this forum, we examine the causes of instability and what will be required to give Nigeria the peace and order it needs to unleash the potential of its people. The threats posed by Boko Haram will receive special focus.
Before the forum, a buffet dinner of ethnic foods will be served, and there
will be a performance by an African drummer!
Dr. Paul Lubeck, John Hopkins University
