About the Seminar
This panel discussion will feature presentations from students who participated in the 2012 Kennedy School J-Term Course “Community Recovery: Rebuilding Disaster Damaged Communities in Chile.” Led by Doug Ahlers, HKS Adjunct Lecturer in Public Policy and Faculty Affiliate of the Program on Crisis Leadership, the course gave 20 graduate students the opportunity to directly engage in disaster reconstruction in communities affected by the 8.8 magnitude earthquake that hit Chile in 2010. The panel will include 4 students from 3 HKS degree programs. Representing each of the project teams, they will share their experiences and give key insights into lessons learned.

A short Q&A session will follow. Refreshments served.

Organized by the Crisis Management Student Group at Harvard Kennedy School and the Program on Crisis Leadership.
