Conversation on American Relief
in South Asia

by Parmatma Saran, Harendra Sirisena & Thomas Tam

[April 1, 2005]


At the suggestion of Executive Vice Chancellor Selma Botman, AAARI was invited to participate in the CUNY's response to the tsunami disaster that struck South Asia.  As different experts from CUNY are beginning the brainstorming process to generate a relevant and comprehensive plan to help rebuild the region, AAARI is taking the initiative to reach out to faculty and staff within CUNY that have the expertise and knowledge of the local region, who can provide a useful background for an effective CUNY response. It is hoped that a better understanding of the local situation will match the resources available at the City University of New York to the region.  The speakers will engage in a dialogue, and will answer questions posed by the audience.
