This seminar is open to the public.
The 2019–2020 Herbert C. Kelman Seminar on International Conflict Analysis and Resolution explores conflict-resolution efforts domestically and worldwide. The seminar considers ways to strengthen the capacity to prevent, resolve, and transform ethnonational conflicts. The topics this year include economic inequality and the impact on domestic politics; the conflict-ridden environment surrounding the US elections; US immigration policy; implications of trade wars on global conflicts; negotiating with North Korea; impact of the #MeToo movement on women’s roles in international affairs—and more. Speakers include experts from academia and the media, as well as political actors from conflict regions. This series, sponsored by the Weatherhead Center for International Affairs, has been planned in collaboration with the Program on Negotiation at Harvard Law School.
