Diminishing Conflicts in the Asia-Pacific.
This one day workshop is the culmination of a 2008 College of Asia and the Pacific seminar series on the diminution of ethnic conflicts in the Asia-Pacific region. A host of country and area specialists provided close studies of why conflict has, or has not, faded in a large number of cases. The workshop is intended to focus on intensive comparison across cases, search for common trends and causal factors, and identify key divergences.
