Bridging the Academic/Policy Divide / Elliot School of International AffairsGeorge Washington University / Washington D.C.October 4 – 6, 2013

Dr. Ivan Sascha Sheehan will deliver a presentation titled Conflict Resolution in the Context of Counterinsurgency: When Academic and Policy Discussions Collide at the 2013 International Studies Association’s joint International Security Studies/ International Security and Arms Control Section Conference in Washington, D.C. The presentation is part of a panel titled Conflict Management in Theory and Practice. Dr. Sheehan is also serving as the chair and discussant for a panel titled Security in a Post-Conflict Environment.

The 2013 meeting of the International Security Studies Section of the International Studies Association and the International Security and Arms Control Section of the American Political Science Association will be hosted by the Elliott School for International Affairs at the George Washington University in Washington D.C. between October 4-6, 2013.

The conference theme is Bridging the Academic/Policy Divide. The location of this year’s conference – in the U.S. capital, across the street from the State Department and a few short blocks from the White House – creates a unique opportunity to cultivate a discussion among security scholars and practitioners…We believe that much can be gained from an interchange between academic researchers who study deterrence, arms control, military intervention, terrorism, civil conflict, counterinsurgency, peace-building, interstate war, non-traditional threats, and human security and those in the policy world who seek the intellectual tools to help protect national interests, ameliorate conflict and lower its costs and risks, and improve human conditions…
