This seminar is open to the public.
The 2021–2022 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 the impact of the pandemic on domestic, regional, and global politics; lessons learned from the pandemic; what is the new normal and the corresponding leadership challenges; new approaches to addressing racial inequality; US immigration policy; implications of the Biden administration on global conflicts; 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.
