10 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.
In anticipation of the 20-year mark since September 11, 2001 and the subsequent launch of the post-9/11 wars, lead researcher Dr. Neta Crawford will present the Project's updated estimates on the most comprehensive and widely-cited assessments of the financial and human costs of the past 20 years of war. The last time the Project released these numbers was in 2019, estimating that the post-9/11 wars had cost $6.4 trillion and 801,000 lives.
The event, hosted by Murtaza Hussain of The Intercept, will also feature a panel on the broader implications of these costs with Dr. Catherine Lutz and Dr. Linda Bilmes of the Costs of War Project, and Dr. Maha Hilal of the Justice for Muslims Collective. Reflections will also be offered by Senator Jack Reed and Representatives Barbara Lee, David Cicilline, and Ro Khanna.
