Ford Seminar

Rational Resisters: Understanding Community Protests to Ebola Containment in DR Congo


Rachel Sweet
Assistant Professor of Global Affairs

This talk reconstructs community responses to Ebola policies and is based around social media monitoring and interviews with victims of insecurity.

The Ford Program Research Seminar Series meets monthly, providing faculty members doing research supported by or related to the Ford Program's mission the chance to share their work, whether in early, middle or late stages of development. It is an opportunity for colleagues to come together in a friendly atmosphere to offer constructive feedback and perhaps come away with some new ideas for our own human development/human dignity-related research. The Seminar hopes to build intellectual community around the Ford Program's mission of conducting research that promises to deepen our understanding of human dignity and enhance the effectiveness of efforts to promote integral human development.
