The next two Institute for Conflict Analysis and Resolution (ICAR) brown bag lectures feature the master’s theses presentations of five ICAR graduate students: David Cunningham, Stephanie Donlon, Dawn Gresham, Patricia Greems, and Andrea Tracy.

This week’s presenters are Cunningham, speaking on “Refugees in Africa,” and Gresham addressing “International Conflict Intervention Training: An Educational Approach to Assessing Training Effectiveness.” Cunningham has been part of an ICAR African working group for the past two years. Gresham, whose undergraduate degree is in education, has investigated whether conflict resolution practitioners see their work as teaching, and how teaching devices are used in conflict resolution.

The brown bag lectures are a series of informal presentations on research and practice of conflict resolution. The program is held every Thursday from noon to 1:30 p.m. in the ICAR Main Conference Room, A401, located at 4260 Chain Bridge Road, Fairfax.
