ANNOUNCEMENTS
SPECIAL LECTURE BY DR. JIBEY ASTHAPPAN
Maxwell Visiting Scholar Lecture Tonight at 6:00 pm

Tonight at 6:00 pm in Dieter-Porter 100, current J. Robert Maxwell '43 Visiting Scholar, Dr. Jibey Asthappan will present "The Cost of War: Weighing Civilian Losses in the Afghan War." Spending almost $700 billion to combat insurgents in Afghanistan, the U.S. population should be hopeful that they "bought" something of value as we conclude this War. This talk focuses on evaluating operations within Afghanistan by accounting for enemy and civilian losses.

 

Dr. Asthappan began his career in 1999 as an Explosive Ordnance Disposal Technician for the United States Air Force. Following the 9/11 attacks, he was deployed with some of the first troops in Afghanistan. He served as a bomb technician to protect civilians and military targets from improvised explosive devices (IEDs) as well as chemical, biological and nuclear weapons. He has also provided advanced training for Internal Security Force bomb squad personnel in Qatar.

  

Dr. Asthappan has conducted extensive research on counter-terrorism and crisis management. While obtaining a Ph.D. in Justice, Law and Society from American University, Dr. Asthappan completed a study that would later be published as a book: Stealing Their Thunder: The Effectiveness of Military Force in Deterring Terrorism. Currently, Dr. Asthappan teaches courses on homeland security, criminal justice, terrorism, criminology, cybercrime and network security at the University of New Haven.
