Pardee Center Hosts Four-Part Webinar Series on Long-Term Costs of Post-9/11 Wars

In the spring of 2021, the Frederick S. Pardee Center for the Study of the Longer-Range Future hosted a series of webinars exploring various costs and consequences of the post-9/11 wars. The webinars, hosted by Neta C. Crawford (Co-Founder & Co-Director of the Costs of War Project and Professor & Chair of the BU Department of Political Science), were part of the “20 Years of War” research series, a two-year collaboration with the Watson Institute for International and Public Affairs at Brown University to expand the ongoing Costs of War project. The “20 Years of War” research series explores the human, financial, environmental, social, and political costs of the post-9/11 wars and illustrates how the impacts of the wars will ripple into the future.
