William Tecumseh Sherman said “War is hell.” It is also an enormously complex process and problem which calls for multi- and inter-disciplinary approaches. Sherman also said, “You might as well appeal against a thunderstorm as against these terrible hardships of war.” What are the causes of war and peace? What are the consequences of war on governments and individual soldiers and civilians? How can cutting edge research on conflict prevention and resolution make war less likely or shorten its duration? Faculty from across the University will discuss their research on war, peace, and related topics.
