MSFS 708 - Diversity& Inclusion in CR/Dev
Untapped power: Leveraging Diversity and Inclusion in Conflict Resolution and Development

A substantial body of research underlines the need to attend to diversity and inclusion in diplomacy, development and conflict resolution. Numerous international resolutions, national laws and plans, and declarations of commitment are in place calling for attention to and equal treatment of ethnic and religious minorities, women, youth, members of the LGBT community, people with disabilities, as well as socio-economically marginalized groups. Yet, realization of the commitments sorely lags behind the rhetoric. This seminar will review how diversity and inclusion are important to peace and prosperity, and discuss progress advancing the agenda and barriers to advancement. The class will also provide analytical and practical tools for advancing diversity and inclusion in the practice of diplomacy, conflict resolution and international development.
