The next Institute for Conflict Analysis and Resolution (ICAR) brown bag lecture features Norman Cigar, professor of strategic studies at the U. S. Marine Corps Command and Staff College in Quantico. In his presentation, “Yugoslavia’s New President Kostunica: Leadership, Paradigms, and Conflict Resolution,” Cigar looks at the prospects for political change in Yugoslavia. He assesses whether the new president and new government in that country make for a brand new situation, or if a lot of baggage from the past, including old nationalistic goals, will present obstacles to genuine conflict resolution.

An expert in Balkan issues, Cigar has consulted with The Hague, and written and traveled extensively in the region.

This presentation is part of a series of informal lectures on research and practice of conflict resolution sponsored by ICAR. The lunch is Thursday, April 12, from noon to 1:30 p.m. in the ICAR Main Conference Room, A401, located at 4260 Chain Bridge Road in Fairfax.
