Engaging Enemies:  North Korea and Iran

How can conflict between nation-states be prevented? Can adversaries be engaged in ways that avoid conflict while promoting dialogue and greater understanding? What are the essential ingredients of engagement and how does engagement differ from more typical, post-conflict approaches such as mediation and negotiation?

Join us for a day-long program that will bring together theorists and practitioners who will delve deeply into a neglected but potentially crucial area of conflict prevention: engagement between enemy or rival states. North Korea will be the primary focus of this day long program with consideration also given to Iran and Burma.  

WHEN: Friday, April 19, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

WHERE: Walnut Room, Indiana Memorial Union, Indiana University Bloomington

This event is free and open to the public. Additional information can be found at www.iub.edu/~panasia/events/ee.
