WINE AND CHEESE RECEPTION TO FOLLOW

"From Central Africa to the Balkans to South and Central Asia, the
proliferation of ethnic and sectarian conflicts has emerged as one of the
most destructive problems of the post-Cold War era and one of the least
understood.  Who is responsible for these ruinous conflicts?  What accounts
for the power?   Why do people follow? A journalist with broad experience in
Liberia, Congo-Zaire, South Africa, Sudan, Uganda and Rwanda, and an
anthropologist specializing in the cultural dimensions of ethnic violence,
with a special interest in contemporary India, will discuss the roots of
conflict - historical, institutional, political, geopolitical, psychological
and criminal - as well as some of the legal proceedings intended to help
resolve them."
