This conference will assess Security Council (SC) effectiveness with reference to long-term contested territories. We will consider contested areas subject to SC Resolutions, including Cyprus, The West Bank, Nagarno Karabakh, Western Sahara, and Kashmir.
Specific queries in this regard include: the reaction of the SC given alternate circumstances and different regions; the function and capacity of the SC to maintain peace and security; and norms that might emerge from SC Resolutions as a guide to the actors enmeshed in long term contested territory.
The invitation to participate extends to academics, governmental personnel, and international agencies operating within contested territories.
This is the first of a conference series pertaining to contested territory. We also intend to examine the role of peacekeepers, other UN agencies, international and regional actors, and civil society.
There is a minimum conference fee of $150 that includes lodging and meals. Applicants should send abstracts of 200 words to email@example.com by Feb 1, 2010. Qualified papers might become part of a publisher`s series.
