315-443-3693As identity-based conflicts proliferate around the world, the important role of culture in conflict escalation, management and resolution is garnering greater attention among conflict resolution practitioners and students of peace studies. When attempting to fully understand conflicts and peace-making, multiculturalism and related issues inevitably surface as major areas of concern. At the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs, we have studied peacekeeping, peacemaking and peacebuilding in order to gain a better understanding of the process, and consequently, to add to the discourse on these topics embodied in the fields of conflict resolution and peace studies. This year, we wish to open a dialogue on the role of multiculturalism as it impacts peacekeeping, peacemaking and peacebuilding. We invite you to join us at the 2004 Annual Conference of the Regional Peace Studies Consortium, and share your research, experiences and ideas on "The Role of Multiculturalism in Peacekeeping, Peacemaking and Peacebuilding."
