Analyzing Peace Agreements in Identity Conflicts

Nicol Hall 222, Beirut campus

The Department of Social Sciences and the Institute for Social Justice and Conflict Resolution are hosting a discussion with Dr. Faten Ghosn on Analyzing Peace Agreements in Identity Conflicts.

Ghosn received her B.A. and M.A. from the American University of Beirut, and her Ph.D. from Pennsylvania State University. Her research and teaching interests focus on the interaction of adversaries, be they conflictual or cooperative. In particular, she has been interested in how such actors handle their disagreements. A common theme running throughout her professional interests is the importance of the choice of strategy that is picked by the adversaries to manage their conflicts. Her articles have appeared in Conflict Management and Peace Science, International Negotiation, International Studies Quarterly, as well as Middle East Journal.

This event is part of Associate Professor Imad Salamey’s graduate seminar titled “Comparative Political Systems”.

All are welcome to attend.
