Today’s Institute for Conflict Analysis and Resolution (ICAR) brown bag lunch features Omowale Elson, Department of Communication, speaking on “Approaching Caribbean Conflict as a Development Process: No Problem!” This presentation is part of a series of informal lectures held by ICAR on the research and practice of conflict resolution.

Elson looks at economic development and social issues and political issues with an inter-cultural and inter-group lens. He examines the current conflict between Europe and Caribbean nations over whether the latter should impose a tax regime demanded by Europe.

Elson is the former president of the Barbados Association of Journalists. His degree is in organizational communication with a specialty in inter-group relations.

The public is invited to hear Elson from noon to 1:30 p.m. in the ICAR Main Conference Room, A401, located at 4260 Chain Bridge Road, Fairfax.
