Author, filmmaker, humanitarian, and Duke alumna Tori Hogan returns to campus to discuss Beyond Good Intentions: A Journey Into the Realities of International Aid, a book based on her National Geographic Explorer film series of the same name.
Hogan, who went to work in international development after graduating from Duke in 2004, soon became uncomfortable with some of the challenges and failures she saw in refugee camps in Kenya, Uganda, and Rwanda. She first started Beyond Good Intentions as an educational organization in 2006, and has since gone on to direct her film series and write.
Hogan was most recently at Duke as a panelist in the KIE-sponsored 2012 Winter Forum, entitled Refugees, Rights, Resettlement. This book launch is being hosted by the Duke Human Rights Center at the Kenan Institute for Ethics.
