Violence and Security

Violence and Security
Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children. - Dwight D. Eisenhower I am currently involved in research on gender-based and interpersonal violence in Tanzania, El Salvador, and Israel/Palestine. In my advocacy in the prevention of war, I served as Vice President of International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War (IPPNW) and President of Physicians for Global Survival (PGS). I have also spoken about small arms at the UN General Assembly.
