Several hundred people, mostly children, have already died of starvation and famine-related disease this year in Ethiopia, Eritrea, and part of Kenya. A panel talks about why famine has struck this region again and why western industrial countries are again facing the criticism that they responded to a predictable crisis too slowly.

Guests

  • Berhane Gebre-Christos Ethiopian ambassador to the U.S.
  • Edmond Keller Director of the James S. Coleman African Studies Center at UCLA
  • Catherine Bertini Executive director of the World Food Programme of the United Nations
