Georgia State University and the Carter Center welcome South African Ambassador Ebrahim Rasool for a conversation about his role in the peaceful disarmament of a Muslim vigilante militia. In an on-stage interview, Ambassador Rasool will discuss post-Apartheid South Africa’s creative community-based solution to the rise of urban terror.
