Reducing human suffering and helping the world’s refugees are cornerstones of U.S. national security policy. When conflict emerges or natural disasters strike, the United States is committed to assisting those in need. The United States’ effort to alleviate human suffering includes both - the delivery of assistance and advocacy for the rights and needs of vulnerable persons. As a part of its effort on humanitarian issues, what is the United States doing globally? What are its priorities in Ukraine? Please join Jonathan Hayes for short presentation and informal discussion on U.S. humanitarian assistance, globally and in Ukraine.
