You are invited to a Complex Problems Salon on Ethnic Violence, at the New England Complex Systems Institute [NECSI], January 28th from 18:00 to 20:00 (6-8p).
We will discuss ethnic violence and the potential for peace building from both modeling and experiential perspectives. We will explore these ideas (a) as global problems, (b) as complex systems, and (c) with thoughts toward building networks for influence over decision making. We will be mindful of framing the reasons for the current approaches to peace keeping or reducing violence (which are not the same).
Come share ideas with our group. We include people who study, enact, and are interested in addressing these issues. You are warmly encouraged to invite others who may be interested.
Remote access is possible - the first nine to register will have face and voice time - after that we're technically limited to watching + Q&A only via this page.
