Moving Walls 14: Panel and Reception in DC!

movingwalls

I’m a big fan of OSI’s Moving Walls exhibition.  They showcase worthy projects by talented photographers though the OSI HQ here in DC is a teensy bit small, so get their early. And don’t forget to RSVP!

The Open Society Institute hosts a panel discussion and reception to mark the Washington, D.C., opening of OSI’s documentary photography exhibit Moving Walls 14.

Panel

OSI Forum: The Niger Delta Crisis—Why It’s Not Just About the Oil

The Niger Delta is an example of the “resource curse” and its damaging impacts, such as poorly managed revenues, kleptocratic rulers, and devastated communities. Despite new initiatives to resolve the economic and social crisis in Nigeria’s oil states, little has worked. Many have focused on the role of armed and criminal gangs and the need for military force, however one issue—the way communities are governed and how leaders can be held accountable—needs more attention. This discussion will focus on how to forge new approaches to the problems of the Niger Delta.

Panelists
Antoine Heuty, Senior Economist, Revenue Watch Institute
Ed Kashi, Photographer
Todd Moss, Senior Fellow and Director of the Emerging Africa Project, the Center for Global Development
Asume Isaac Osuoka, Director, Social Action
