GEN ED: Historical Studies Designation; Integrative Learning Experience (Theme: "War and Peace")
Ethnic peace, conflicts, and resolutions are among the oldest dreams and most difficult challenges of human experience. The art of compromise and accommodation, the process for peaceful resolution of differences and setting of priorities, the rule of law as an inclusive and systematic set of legal procedures, and the universal respect for human rights are necessary in order to deal with ethnic conflicts and thus should be a part of professional training of new leaders. This course also deals with historic and comparative studies of ethnic conflicts in the West, the Balkans, Caucasus, and Central Asia.
