Holocaust Museum Houston presents Unstable Ground: Climate Change, Conflict, and Genocide
Holocaust Museum Houston will host a lecture by Dr. Alex Alvarez, author of Unstable Ground: Climate Change, Conflict, and Genocide, for the fourth lecture of the Spring 2018 Public Lecture Series, Intergenerational Trauma & Memory: History Carried Through Generations.
Climate change is increasingly impacting communities and nations around the world and challenging our ability to cope and adapt to new environmental realities. It also poses significant risk for the onset of communal violence, war and genocide. This talk examines some of the risk factors for violent conflict brought by climate induced stress, especially around resources, population displacement and borders.
