The Kelman Seminar Series on Negotiation, Conflict and the News Media with:
Christine Gorman, science reporter, contributor to Time magazine
and Nieman Fellow

Adil Najam, director of the Frederick S. Pardee Center, Professor of International Relations and Geography and the Environment at Boston University

The discussions in the Negotiation, Conflict and the News Media series focus on exploring the relationship among government, news media, and the conflict resolution community in framing and responding to conflict. Topics examine how conflict is framed and how that influences the escalation and de-escalation of conflict and the public understanding of various responses to terrorism. In general, participants will consider ways to strengthen the capacity to prevent, resolve, and transform ethnonational conflicts.

This Herbert C. Kelman Seminar on International Conflict Analysis and Resolution series is sponsored by the Program on Negotiation, the Nieman Foundation for Journalism, the Joan Shorenstein Center on the Press, Politics, and Public Policy, and the MIT-Harvard Public Disputes Program, as well as Boston area members of the Alliance for Peacebuilding.
