Ethics lecture on Nepal earthquake and development May 3

The Leon S. Peters Ethics Lecture Series continues with “Stealing from the Poor: Nepal’s Earthquake and Development Ethics” presented by Dr. Gyanesh Lama from 5 to 6 p.m. Tuesday, May 3, in the University Business Center (Room 191). Originally from Nepal, Lama is an assistant professor in the Department of Social Work Education at Fresno State. In April 2015, a massive earthquake hit Nepal, causing significant suffering. Lama helped coordinate local donation efforts and traveled to Nepal to support relief and reconstruction efforts. His talk will provide updates about the recovery effort and address ethical issues related to economic, social and political development. Issues include targeting aid, graft and corruption, caste system and religious hierarchies. This free, public lecture is sponsored by The Ethics Center at Fresno State with support from the Leon S. Peters Foundation. INFO: Andrew Fiala at afiala@csufresno.edu or www.csufresno.edu/ethicscenter.
