Roundtable on Ethnic Conflict
Staff: Gideon Rose, Editor, Foreign Affairs, and Peter G. Peterson Chair, Foreign Affairs
January 1, 1999 - June 30, 2000
While the post-Cold War world has seen a decrease in military conflict between countries, ethnic and communal conflict within states is on the rise. This latter trend has led scholars to focus on the causes and consequences of nationalism, while policymakers and the public have grappled with more immediate questions regarding U.S. intervention in Somalia, Bosnia, and elsewhere. Today as never before, understanding the nature of ethnic and communal conflict is important for both intellectual and practical reasons. This roundtable will allow Council members to discuss these topics and hear presentations by leading researchers in the field.
