In the world today, there are numerous simmering conflicts of neither overt hostilities nor resolution. This conference will examine several of these controversies that have been “frozen” in place. Despite attempts to bring closure to these armed standoffs—some attempts have gone on for decades—the sides remain eyeing each other warily. Clearly, something must change with the dispute resolution models that are being followed. At this conference, we hope to discover commonalities among the conflicts, and explore new ideas to resolve them.
