The heartbreaking sight of terrified Afghans struggling to leave their country in the wake of the withdrawal of United States and NATO forces, inevitably brings to mind images from the end of the American war in Vietnam, and raises questions about the impact of other conflicts such as the war on the Korean Peninsula. Organized in two sessions, this conference prompts us to consider the geopolitical, human, environmental, and economic consequences of these wars on the people in the conflict zone, as well on the veterans and citizens of the United States. The first session convenes scholars whose perspectives are informed by rigorous study of extant documentation. The second panel comprises representatives of humanitarian organizations that have been working on the ground to mitigate the baneful consequences of war in the conflict areas as well as among former combatants.
