Global Conflict [electronic resource]

This program-a valuable tool for introducing the concepts of energy security, antiterrorism, and managing change at the global level-identifies the roots of violent conflict by way of specific examples. Through discussion of territorial conflicts (India/Pakistan, Israel/PLO), genocides (Rwanda, Srebrenica), terrorism (al Qaeda, IRA, ETA), and hybridized violence such as that found in Sudan, Global Conflict makes the case that an understanding of the sources of conflict, combined with the free exchange of information internationally, is the key to reducing strife at all levels.

Breaking the Wall of Organizational Ignorance [electronic resource]: How Visual Language Supports Decision Making About Wicked Problems and Social Messes

Organizations that deal with long-term social, commercial, or organizational policy planning face complex and shifting problems that cannot be successfully treated with traditional linear, analytical approaches. These issues, called "wicked problems" or "social messes" in the early 1970s for their nonobjectively assessable nature, causes, boundaries, and solutions, are at the core of Robert Horn's interdisciplinary studies in visual language. This political scientist - whose academic career in policy communication, social learning, and knowledge management has brought him from Harvard to Stanford - has worked since the 1960s on methodologies to analyze and communicate complex subject matters to public and private organizations. In this video lecture from the 2011 Falling Walls Confer [...]

Reunion [electronic resource]: Dialog and Reconciliation in Kosovo

Shortly before the NATO bombing of Kosovo in 1999, young Serbs and Albanians sat down together with one bold, improbable goal: creating a constructive cross-cultural dialog. Produced ten years later, this follow-up documentary features the participants meeting once again-an encounter in which traumatic stories are shared, grievances and sympathies are exchanged, and the roles of victim and oppressor become difficult to assign. The expertise of the Nansen Dialog Network, a Norway-based organization that helps disparate groups explore reconciliation and conflict-resolution strategies, plays a significant role in the meetings and the film.

Words of War [electronic resource]

Words of War is an original examination of how presidents rhetorically move a nation to war. Topics explored include provocation: "The deeds of our enemy are evil"; justification: "War is in our national interests"; lamentation: "We hate war"; and inspiration: "We will win!" Illuminating and discussion-provoking.

Bill Moyers Journal: Media Analysis / Jeremy Scahill on the Costs of War

In this edition of the Journal, Bill Moyers is joined by NPR’s Brooke Gladstone and NYU journalism professor and PressThink blogger Jay Rosen to sort out the messages and spin regarding the media frenzy over U.S. Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor and the swiftboating of healthcare reform.
