Tuesday 18 June, 2013, Naftali Building of Social Sciences in Efter Hall (Room 001)
The International Program in Conflict Resolution and Mediation at Tel Aviv University is hosting the second academic colloquium entitled "Can Peacekeepers Keep the Peace?" with representatives of the multinational peacekeeping forces in the region.
With the recent kidnapping of United Nations peacekeeping forces mandated to safeguard the demilitarized zone on the Golan Heights, and the sectarian violence in Syria approaching Israel's borders, the role of peacekeepers and their decades-old mandates in the region have become immediately relevant.
The International Program in Conflict Resolution and Mediation is a one-year, interdisciplinary MA degree which gives its students the academic and practical skills needed for conflict resolution in the international arena. The program combines world-renowned faculty, with years of experience in historical and current negotiations in the region, with a diverse student body which represents the growing academic, geographical and professional interest in conflict resolution.
This year's participants include:
United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL) Chief of Staff, Brigadier General Hugues Delort-Laval
United Nations Truce Supervision Organization (UNTSO) Deputy Chief of Staff Col. Patrick Gauchat
Chair: Prof. Nitza Nachmias
