Eric P. Schwartz, Assistant Secretary of State, Visits Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health to Address Rebuilding of Failed States

On November 30, Eric P. Schwartz, Assistant Secretary of State Bureau of Population, Refugees, and Migration, visited the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health to address U.S. policy and human rights in efforts to rebuild “failed states.”

In his talk "Renewal Out of Ruin: Saving Lives and Building Capacity in Fragile and Failed States," Assistant Secretary Schwartz explored what actions concerned outsiders—donor governments, international organizations and other non-governmental organizations—can take to save lives in circumstances in which governments demonstrate little inclination to meet the basic needs of their populations, and do not have processes of accountability or transparent management that permit easy partnerships with international organizations. Sec. Schwartz highlighted the MOM Project (mobile obstetric medics) in Burma as a example of an effective strategy.

The complete text of the speech is available on the U.S. State Department website.

The event was sponsored by the Bloomberg School’s Center for Public Health and Human Rights.
