Physicians for Human Rights (PHR) surveyed leaders from 604 Rohingya hamlets in Myanmar’s Rakhine state encompassing more than 916,000 people. The findings, coupled with in-depth interviews and forensic medical examinations of Rohingya survivors, point to a widespread and systematic pattern of targeted violence – including rapes and killings of women, men, and children – that drove more than 720,000 Rohingya into neighboring Bangladesh. Dr. Parveen Parmar and Dr. Jen Leigh will present the findings of these studies.

This is a forum for faculty, administrators, and leadership from universities across South Asia, the Middle East, and neighboring regions (Central Asia and East Asia) to explore ways in which universities may develop a liberal arts education program for undergraduate students, while fostering such objectives as sustainable development; social inclusion and peace; and cooperation across national boundaries among individuals, institutions, and governments. These goals are essential to addressing shared global challenges and to realizing opportunities to advance human well-being. Universities, as institutions that prepare future leadership of societies, have a unique role to play in the achievement of these goals, educating students as global citizens who can understand, value, and contribute to the common good.

JP Onnela, Assistant Professor of Biostatistics, Department of Biostatistics, Harvard School of Public Health
Cell phones are no longer just a tool of communication – they are being used to improve the lives of billions of people. As the technology continues to improve, collecting behavioral data is getting easier and less intrusive. Data from cell phones can reveal everything from an individual’s mental health, how pathogens spread, to how social networks function at the societal level. In this session, Professor Onnela will discuss his work on using digital phenotyping to study the behavior of social networks with big data.
