The nationally regarded dispute resolution program at Marquette University Law School hosted an interdisciplinary conference examining the relationship between media and conflict resolution. The International Media and Conflict Resolution Conference brought together experts from diverse fields to discuss the influence of different forms of media in the development, escalation, and de-escalation of conflict. An international cadre of journalists, legal academics, psychologists, communication professors, and conflict-resolution professionals who live and work in the U.S., Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Middle East gathered at the Law School for sessions analyzing the dynamics of media and conflict resolution in the following topic areas: (1) Separation/ Independence; (2) Terrorism; and (3) Elections and Conflict.
