October 21, 2014 - The Middle East Institute's George and Rhonda Salem Family Foundation lecture series proudly hosted Gaza-based Rania Elhilou (ANERA) and Paul Butler (ANERA) for a discussion of the humanitarian and infrastructural costs of the recent Gaza conflict and steps needed to address the ongoing crisis. Nearly two months after the ceasefire, more than 100,000 people remain displaced due to the massive infrastructural damage to housing units, businesses, schools and clinics. Many more lack access to basic resources, including food, electricity and clean drinking water.

Middle East Institute scholar Amb. Philip Wilcox moderated the discussion.
