“What do conflict analysis techniques tell us about the causes and dynamics of the United States against Iraq conflict?” asks Richard Rubenstein, professor of conflict resolution and public affairs at the Institute for Conflict Analysis and Resolution (ICAR). Rubenstein will pose that and related questions as he presents the next brown bag lecture at ICAR tomorrow at noon.

Rubenstein, who earned his J.D. from Harvard University and his M.A. from Oxford University as a Rhodes Scholar, has led or participated in several recent forums on the issue of impending war with Iraq. Tomorrow he will address “U.S. versus Iraq: Implications for Conflict Analysis and Resolution,” looking at what possibilities exist for resolving the conflict nonviolently, or through violence, and what conflict resolvers can do.

The discussion is part of ICAR’s series of informal lectures on the research and practice of conflict resolution and is held in the ICAR Main Conference Room, A401, located at 4260 Chain Bridge Road in Fairfax. For more information, call (703) 993-1300.
