Strathclyde Conflict and Resolution (SCAR) is hosting an interdisciplinary conference which will analyse conflict, terror and resolution at various levels: past-present; private-public; local-global. In doing so it aims to reach across disciplinary barriers by bringing together more than forty speakers from the whole of the social sciences spectrum, including politics, history, law, sociology and psychology. Such a holistic analysis will provoke, stimulate and question contemporary thought, while advocating the need for joint efforts to address common challenges. Panels include: Narratives of Conflict, Cultural Reconciliation, Reporting Conflict, Divided Cities and Sectarianism, Just War, and the ‘War on Terror’, among others.
Where: University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, U.K.
When: September 11 & 12, 2008
