Why Russia Is So Involved With The Syrian Civil War
Russia has played a major role in the Syrian Civil War and has garnered controversy over its airstrikes along with Syrian government forces against terrorist organizations and other rebel groups. Andrew Parailiti, RAND director of the Center for Global Risk and Security, explains why Russia decided to intervene in the war, which includes its willingness to aid an ally, and challenge the US' role in the world. Following is a transcript of the video.   Andrew Parasiliti: Russia takes a broader view of what it considers to be terrorist groups than the United States does. Why Russia is so involved with the Syrian Civil War. Parasiliti: I tend to find that Russia's interests in Syria are pretty clear and they are as follows: One, they're supporting an ally. Bashar al-Assad's government is under attack. First by popular uprisings, and then by terrorist groups, and other armed groups backed by countries in the region. And they're not gonna let him fall. The Russians are concerned that if Assad fell, that you would either have a group in power that included jihadists who would be inimical to US and Russian, and other interests, actually. Or you would have a continually destabilized state that allowed these terrorist groups to continue. Two, there's a counter-terrorism piece. This is what the Russians tell the Americans when we talk about Syria with them. They say Moscow shares Washington's interests in combating terrorist groups like ISIS and Al-Qaeda. That's true to a certain extent. Although, Russia takes a broader view of what it considers to be terrorist groups than the United States does. It is more inclined towards Assad's definition, which is any armed group which opposes him, rather than the strict UN definition which would be Islamic State, Al-Qaeda. But it is correct to say that Russia also supports counter-terrorism activity. Third, is challenging the US role. In a kind of lesson learned from the previous era, Russia went along with the UN resolution which allowed what was then called the Right to Protect Use of Force in Libya during the Obama administration. And that ended up leading to the downfall of Gaddafi, and we saw what happened there. Russia is not ever going to let that happen again. They're going to try to prevent, actually, any US or other military intervention that could destabilize a friendly state. It's kind of a demonstration effect to the rest of the Middle East. Russia stands by its allies in the region. People take note of that. When Assad was on the ropes, Russia stepped up with a substantial military power to keep him in power. The Iranians too, but it was the Russian initiative and Russian airpower which has been instrumental in Assad's ability to hang on. -------------------------------------------------- Follow Business Insider on Twitter: https://twitter.com/businessinsider Follow BI on Facebook: http://bit.ly/1W9Lk0n Read more: http://www.businessinsider.com/ -------------------------------------------------- Business Insider is the fastest growing business news site in the US.

12. Civil War
The American Revolution (HIST 116) Professor Freeman concludes the discussion of the Declaration of Independence. The Declaration was widely circulated and read aloud throughout the colonies. Professor Freeman argues that by 1775-1776, British and American citizens were operating under different assumptions about how the conflict between them could be resolved. The American colonists began to organize themselves for defensive measures against an aggressive British state. Meanwhile, the British assumed that the rebels were a minority group, and if they could suppress this radical minority through an impressive display of force, the rest of the colonists would submit to their governance again. Spring of 1775 saw the beginnings of military conflict between the British army and colonial militias, with fighting at Lexington, Concord, and Breed's Hill. As a result, the colonists began to seriously consider the need for independence, and the Continental Congress began the process of organizing a war. 00:00 - Chapter 1.

As John pointed out last week, the Cold War was occasionally hot, and a lot of that heat was generated in Asia. This is starting to sound weird with the hot/cold thing, so let's just say that the United States struggle against communist expansion escalated to full-blown, boots on the ground war in Korea and Vietnam. In both of these cases, the United States sent soldiers to intervene in civil wars that it looked like communists might win. That's a bit of a simplification, but John will explain it all to you.

NOTE: The "history" section talks about the Civil War and slavery. The history was provided by the Ancestry website, and I read it along with everything else. If that bothers you, please don't watch. I'm disabling comments on this because, from my experience on here, anything that deals with Southern US history elicits conflict and debate. I learned my lesson the one time I tried to read some sections on a book about Georgia history. Sorry, no comments on this one.

The Story of Resolution 1325 | Women, Peace and Security
When United Nations Security Council resolution 1325 (2000) was passed, it changed history. Never before had world leaders formally recognized the key contributions of women in conflict and post-conflict interventions, including their role in brokering peace, peacekeeping, and peacebuilding. On the 15th anniversary of resolution 1325, we look back at how a broad civil society movement brought this agenda to the council, and, working together with governments and UN agencies, saw the resolution through to adoption.

The Industrial Economy: Crash Course US History #23
In which John Green teaches you about the Industrial Economy that arose in the United States after the Civil War. You know how when you're studying history, and you're reading along and everything seems safely in the past, and then BOOM you think, "Man, this suddenly seems very modern."

Understanding Sun Tzu's Book 'The Art of War'- Full Documentary
Understanding Sun Tzu's - Full Documentary Few writers from ancient times enjoy the same level of recognition as Sun Tzu, the famous philosopher and general from ancient China. Quotes from his timeless treatise the "Art of War" appear in popular culture and the whole book is frequently studied by business and military students around the world. Sun Tzu's "Art of War" presents thirteen chapters that describe how to factor in all important variables when trying to win a conflict. The principles can be applied to military problems as well as the challenges of the marketplace or even personal struggles. The precise dates of the birth and death of Sun Tzu are not known, but history has verified his existence around the year 500 B.C.E. in China. Born of Sun Ping, a senior military officer in the state of Qi, Sun Tzu grew up with an education focusing on military affairs. At the time, it was common for Chinese generals to write about their philosophies of war, but it has been the work of Sun Tzu that has survived the ages. What made his "Art of War" so compelling that it is quite literally still in print 2,500 years after it was first inked onto strips of bamboo? Part of the resilience of Sun Tzu's ideas comes from his success as a general. Ancient China was a complex chessboard of highly civilized yet warring states, and Sun Tzu enjoyed a respectable career within this challenging environment. Sun Tzu was in the employ of He Lu, the ruler of the state of Wu, who made him a general of the kingdom. In this role, Sun Tzu participated in numerous campaigns. His successes included the destruction of the Yue state, the territorial expansion of Wu, and the occupation of the city of Ying. His successful application of his strategic thinking surely lent his literary work strength. His "Art of War" is not limited to narrow military concepts such as positioning soldiers on the field. Sun Tzu took into account all the forces acting upon a state. War is a tool of the state, and as Sun Tzu wrote, "War is a matter of vital importance to the state; a matter of life or death, the road either to survival or to ruin." But this crucial element of state power could not operate independently of diplomacy, politics, economics, geography, and philosophy. Each chapter in the "Art of War" explores these and other factors in detail and teaches that the application of military force must be used with a multidisciplinary approach. Geography is certainly given great emphasis because the actual land that is being fought over underpins military strategy, but it is not the sole consideration for a general. Among the many sage pieces of advice that one can take away from the "Art of War" is Sun Tzu's insistence that war should not be started hastily, with optimistic assumptions, or without good intelligence. The stakes in war are too high for the state to lose, so therefore it must only employ its military tools when it can achieve victory. The economics of warfare is repeatedly stressed by Sun Tzu because of the heavy toll that maintaining an army in the field extracts from its society. War should not be the first tool that a state uses to gain its desired outcomes because it is so expensive. In Sun Tzu's final chapter of his book, he opens with a statement that rings very true today as my own country, the United States, finds itself financing a prolonged war. From Chapter 13 "Use of Spies" Sun Tzu wrote: "Now, when an army of one hundred thousand is raised and dispatched on a distant campaign, the expenses borne by the people together with disbursements of the treasury will amount to a thousand pieces of gold daily. In addition, there will be continuous commotion both at home and abroad, people will be exhausted by the corvee of transport, and the farm work of seven hundred thousand households will be disrupted."

Is The Future Of Peacekeeping Peaceful? | Shannon Zimmerman | TEDxUQ
The United Nations is an embodiment of a continually evolving international order and UN peace operations are the physical manifestation of that order. Though there is no international consensus as to what peace and security mean, the prevailing understanding of these ideas is modeled by what peace operations do and how they do it. So what do current peace operations tell us about how the world understands peace and security? Has the recent global focus on terrorism changed what we think peace and security really means? Shannon Zimmerman is a peacemaker specializing in understanding how ideas of peace and security interact. She is currently a PhD researcher at the Asia Pacific Centre for the Responsibility to Protect based at the University of Queensland in Brisbane, Australia. Her research focuses on the intersections of the Protection of Civilians (PoC) and counter-terrorism norms within United Nations peacekeeping missions. She specifically looks at how these norms interact with each other at the field level and their impact on the structure and nature of contemporary peacekeeping missions. Shannon holds a Masters in Conflict Resolution from Georgetown University in Washington D.C. Previously, Shannon worked at the United States Institute of Peace and the North American branch of the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx

The Campaign To End All War
Support the show: http://www.patreon.com/AcronymTV In this interview with David Swanson, we discuss a campaign, still in its planning stages, to eliminate "the institution of war as an acceptable enterprise for the human species." Visiting the website WorldBeyongWar.org, one is prompted to sign a simple two sentence pledge that reads: "I understand that wars and militarism make us less safe rather than protect us, that they kill, injure and traumatize adults, children and infants, severely damage the natural environment, erode civil liberties, and drain our economies, siphoning resources from life-affirming activities. I commit to engage in and support nonviolent efforts to end all war and preparations for war and to create a sustainable and just peace." Here is a sample of quotes from notable early signatories to the pledge: "I support this proposal and agree with this great and important initiative to abolish militarism and war. I will continue to speak out for an end to the institution of militarism and war and for institutions built on international law and human rights and nonviolent conflict resolution." — Mairead Maguire, Nobel Peace Laureate "As a 29 year veteran of the US Army/Army Reserves, retiring as a Colonel and having served as a U.S. diplomat for 16 years and resigning in 2003 in opposition to the Iraq war, I firmly believe war does not resolve political issues. We must work diligently to force the governments of our nations to use diplomacy, not weapons." —Ann Wright "Everybody's worried about stopping terrorism. Well, there's a really easy way: stop participating in it." — Noam Chomsky "It is so inspiring to see a new group coming together not to focus on a particular war or weapons system, but on all war--everywhere. And it's great to have such beautifully crafted arguments about why war is not inevitable and how war contributes to so many other global ills. This coalition is worthy of Martin Luther King's call to end violence and instead put our energies and resources into 'life-affirming activities.' Bravo!" —Medea Benjamin "Militarism is the world's biggest problem...morally, socially, economically, and environmentally." —Ward Reilly "Creating a world beyond war may be the noblest endeavor we can work on. Can you imagine what future generations will think if we succeed? We will leave them a world where trillions of dollars are not wasted annually on weapons and war, where tens of thousands or hundreds of thousands are no longer slaughtered in unnecessary wars. Surely we can imagine solving conflicts between nations in a more mature way; we can imagine the human race evolving to a higher consciousness that no longer requires war. We can imagine a world without war, now we have to work toward such a world. It will be a global challenge, uniting the world to accomplish this great new reality." —Kevin Zeese, PopularResistance.org "War is a lie. War is a racket. War is hell. War is waste. War is a crime. War is terrorism. War is not the answer." —Coleen Rowley "War destroys. War obliterates. War is ruination. And war begets more war. After thousands of years of experience proving this, and reams of literature and countless works of art exposing it, when are people going to learn?" —Lisa Simeone "War is a barbaric tool of the war profiteers and Empires who employ them. War pits young people from the working class against other similarly poor, or disadvantaged humans, for nothing but the greed of the few. Only we the people can make war obsolete by not participating in the profound crimes of the profiteers and other war mongers." —Cindy Sheehan *** Our guest show today was David Swanson. David Swanson is working to end all war at http://WorldBeyondWar.org His books include: War No More: The Case for Abolition (2013), War Is A Lie(2010), When the World Outlawed War (2011), and The Military Industrial Complex at 50 (2012).

Conflict in CAR Affects Almost 2 Million
From VOA Learning English, we bring you health news in Special English. UNICEF says the recent conflict in the Central African Republic has affected 1.8 million people. The United Nations Children's Fund says children make up half of the 800,000 people in urgent need of humanitarian aid. Rebel groups rose up against President Francois Bozize in December. The Seleka rebel coalition signed a peace deal with the president in January. A UNICEF spokeswoman says some of the hardest-hit towns remain under rebel control. She says major risks for children include sexual violence and being recruited into armed groups. UNICEF says eight percent of young children in the Central African Republic suffer from moderate acute malnutrition. Two percent suffer from severe cases of hunger. Yet, basic services are hard to find. The agency says that in areas affected by conflict, fewer than half of the children attend school. UNICEF says the rebels and pro-government militias are recruiting children as soldiers. The group says it aims to bring aid to more communities to help families displaced by the crisis in Central African Republic. Globally, UNICEF is appealing for $1.4 billion this year to meet the urgent needs of tens of millions of children in 45 countries and regions. The children are threatened by conflict, natural disasters and other emergencies. In two areas of increasing conflict, the situation is especially threatening for children. In Syria, about 2.5 million people need assistance, and UNICEF says more than half of them are children. And a UNICEF official says that in Mali, children in the north are displaced, out of school, and at risk of being drawn into armed groups.

TEDxGallatin - Amanda D'Annucci - Storytelling, Psychology and Neuroscience
Amanda D'Annucci is pursuing her Master's degree in the Psychology of Expression at NYU's Gallatin School of Individualized Study. She graduated from the Macaulay Honors College at Hunter College in 2009 with a B.A. in Urban Studies. She has served as an Intern at the Office of Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton, a Public Service Scholar at the Office of the Mayor in NYC, and a Summer Intern with the Ford Foundation. Amanda is currently working with Narativ, Inc, a consultancy specializing in effective communication through storytelling. Amanda is also a trainer with Story-to-College and a Peace Mover with Dance4Peace. Storytelling is a vital yet oft under-appreciated tool for effective conflict resolution. "Stories communicate values, beliefs, hopes, fears, and dreams of a people in a way that engenders respect and understanding in the listener" (Duryea, Potts. 1993 p. 388). The art of storytelling has a psychological and neurological basis that explains our natural human predilection for narrative. Through two case studies -- one involving Israeli and Palestinian students, the other involving the Sierra Leonean civil wars -- this talk will explore personal narratives and collective myth to inspire a pure and inspiring approach to conflict resolution. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

Ethnicity and conflict: an empirical study
What are the causes of civil conflict? On the basis of recent theoretical and empirical research, professors Joan Esteban and Laura Mayoral (IAE and Barcelona GSE) and Debraj Ray (NYU) show that preexisting ethnic divisions do influence social conflict. Their analysis provides evidence that ethnic conflicts are likely to be instrumental, i.e, driven by political or economic reasons, rather than by ancestral hatreds across groups.

Structure of the Court System: Crash Course Government and Politics #19
This week Craig Benzine is going to talk about the structure of the U.S. court system and how exactly it manages to keep things moving smoothly. We’’ll talk about trial courts, district courts, appeals courts, circuit courts, state supreme courts, and of course the one at the top - the U.S. Supreme Court. It’s all quite a bit to manage with jurisdictions and such, but it's important to remember that the vast majority of cases never even make it to court! Most are settled out of court, but also terms like mootness and ripeness are used to throw cases out altogether. Today, we're going to focus on how cases make it to the top, and next week we’ll talk about what happens when they get there.

They will discuss (in a fluid dialogue format) their experiences within the peace process and lessons for ongoing reconciliation efforts in Sri Lanka. Dialogue Chair: Dr. Sutha Nadarajah is a lecturer in the Centre for Diplomacy and International Studies at SOAS, University of London. His research combines themes of security, development and liberal governance to examine security threats and the international community, with particular reference to the Sri Lankan conflict. Speaker: Kandia Sarveswaran is a Tamil National Alliance politician serving as a member of the Northern Provincial Council since 2013. He assists the Chief Minister on economic planning and is younger brother to the current Tamil National Alliance president. Speaker: Shiral Lakthilaka is a lawyer and researcher on conflict resolution.

Was the Civil War About Slavery?
What caused the Civil War? Did the North care about abolishing slavery? Did the South secede because of slavery? Or was it about something else entirely...perhaps states' rights?

More than 150 years later this remains a controversial question. Why? Because many people don't want to believe that the citizens of the southern states were willing to fight and die to preserve a morally repugnant institution. There has to be another reason, we are told. Well, there isn't. The evidence is clear and overwhelming. Slavery was, by a wide margin, the single most important cause of the Civil War -- for both sides. Before the presidential election of 1860, a South Carolina newspaper warned that the issue before the country was, "the extinction of slavery," and called on all who were not prepared to, "surrender the institution," to act. Shortly after Abraham Lincoln's victory, they did. The secession documents of every Southern state made clear, crystal clear, that they were leaving the Union in order to protect their "peculiar institution" of slavery -- a phrase that at the time meant "the thing special to them." The vote to secede was 169 to 0 in South Carolina, 166 to 7 in Texas, 84 to 15 in Mississippi. In no Southern state was the vote close. Alexander Stephens of Georgia, the Confederacy's Vice President clearly articulated the views of the South in March 1861. "Our new government," he said, was founded on slavery. "Its foundations are laid, its cornerstone rests upon the great truth that the Negro is not equal to the white man; that slavery, submission to the superior race, is his natural and normal condition." Yet, despite the evidence, many continue to argue that other factors superseded slavery as the cause of the Civil War. Some argue that the South only wanted to protect states' rights. But this raises an obvious question: the states' rights to what? Wasn't it to maintain and spread slavery? Moreover, states' rights was not an exclusive Southern issue. All the states -- North and South -- sought to protect their rights -- sometimes they petitioned the federal government, sometimes they quarreled with each other. In fact, Mississippians complained that New York had too strong a concept of states' rights because it would not allow Delta planters to bring their slaves to Manhattan. The South was preoccupied with states' rights because it was preoccupied first and foremost with retaining slavery. Some argue that the cause of the war was economic. The North was industrial and the South agrarian, and so, the two lived in such economically different societies that they could no longer stay together. Not true. In the middle of the 19th century, both North and South were agrarian societies. In fact, the North produced far more food crops than did the South. But Northern farmers had to pay their farmhands who were free to come and go as they pleased, while Southern plantation owners exploited slaves over whom they had total control. And it wasn't just plantation owners who supported slavery. The slave society was embraced by all classes in the South. The rich had multiple motivations for wanting to maintain slavery, but so did the poor, non-slave holding whites. The "peculiar institution" ensured that they did not fall to the bottom rung of the social ladder. That's why another argument -- that the Civil War couldn't have been about slavery because so few people owned slaves -- has little merit.

How Does The Civil War Qualify as the First Modern War?
For 5,800 years of recorded history, wars were fought with pre-modern forms of transportation ad communication, where the world was powered by windmills, watermills, literal horse power and human muscle. However, this all changed with the invention of the steam engine and its implementation in the 19th century. In fifty short years, macadamized roads, canals, steam trains, steam boats, steam presses and telegraph communication revolutionized the transfer of energy and power. By the 1850s, every aspect of western civilization looked and functioned differently than it had for thousands of years. It was in this milieu the Civil War was fought. What did the first modern war look like and how did it differ from previous wars? How did wartime observations by foreign emissaries alter the course of future wars?

Research Unplugged: The roots of Lincoln's Constitutional Ideas
In this video clip, Mark Neely describes his view that Abraham Lincoln's three seminal ideas about the Constitution—nationalism, government sponsored economic development, and his anti-slavery position—developed early in his life, influenced by his hardscrabble childhood on the American frontier and the painful lessons of the War of 1812. Neely is Penn State's McCabe-Greer Professor in the American Civil War Era, a Pulitzer Prize-winning historian, and, most recently, author of Lincoln and the Triumph of the Nation: Constitutional Conflict in the American Civil War. This brief clip was excerpted from Neely's Spring 2012 Research Unplugged talk titled "Lincoln and Liberty: A Closer Look at Abraham Lincoln and the Constitution in Wartime."

Bridging Ethnic Divides and Building Peace: Lessons from Kenya’s Experience
Book Launch and Dialogue with Alice Nderitu Moderated by Mark Tschirgi In her book, Kenya, Bridging Ethnic Divides: A Commissioner’s Experience on Cohesion and Integration Alice Nderitu takes us behind the scenes of efforts to build peace and cohesion between different ethnic and racial communities in Kenya, as she worked with elders, mediated between political leaders at the highest level and founded Uwiano Platform for Peace, an innovative conflict prevention tool after the violent crisis of 2007-2008 and leading up to Kenya’s 2013 general elections. The Global Centre for Pluralism explored the lessons that can be learned from Kenya’s experience to inform other conflict-afflicted countries grappling with the challenges of conflict mediation, reconciliation and post-conflict institutional reform. This event was organized by the Global Centre for Pluralism and the Simon Fraser University Morris J. Wosk Centre for Dialogue, as part of the proceedings for the Jack P. Blaney Award for Dialogue, recently awarded to Nderitu.

Syrian War Monitor: More than 500 killed in Eastern Ghouta bombing
The United Nations Security Council has unanimously approved a resolution demanding a ceasefire in Syria. The resolution aims to allow humanitarian aid deliveries and medical evacuations. The ceasefire does not apply to operations against Islamic State and al-Qaeda's former affiliate in Syria, the Nusra Front. And the resolution does not specify when the truce is supposed to go into force. Syrian warplanes have continued bombing the rebel enclave in Eastern Ghouta. The area is controlled by several jihadist groups including the Nusra Front. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights says more than 500 people were killed in the week leading up to the UN resolution.

Parties try to forge a resolution for Syria once again in Astana
A fourth round of talks aimed at resolving the Syrian conflict is being held in Astana, the capital city of Kazakhstan. Representatives from the Syrian government, the US, Russia, Turkey, as well as the United Nations are present at the meeting. Diplomats say some of the Syrian opposition has arrived at the meeting but has decided to suspend its participation. However, the UN Special Envoy for Syria, Staffan de Mistura urged them to return to the negotiation table in a bid to de-escalate the violence. Meanwhile, the Turkish foreign minister has disclosed three documents have already been agreed upon, while a fourth is currently under review at the meeting. Russia's lead negotiator also said he hoped the parties involved would agree to create a series of safe zones in the war-torn country.

Conflict Urbanism: The Center for Spatial Research
Friday, October 7, 2016 To mark its inaugural year, The Center for Spatial Research will present its work on "conflict urbanism" in Aleppo and Colombia. The event will engage participants in a discussion about the role of conflict in structuring urban space and the politics of representation in zones of discordance, disruption and violence as they contribute to the making and remaking of cities. The roundtable will feature Eyal Weizman, Professor of Spatial and Visual Cultures at Goldsmiths, University of London and Director of the Centre for Research Architecture and Enrico Bertini, Assistant Professor of Computer Science and Engineering at NYU Tandon School of Engineering as respondents to the work presented by CSR researchers and students: Laura Kurgan, Juan Francisco Saldarriaga, Grga Basic, Dare Brawley, Violet Whitney, and Michael Storm. The center point of Conflict Urbanism: Aleppo is an interactive web-based map representing the intensifying violence in urban Aleppo after five years of civil war in Syria. The map combines layers of high-resolution satellite images together with data gathered from multiple perspectives and sources to show the historic city from 2012 to the present. Using the logic of a typical geographic information system (GIS) map, the Conflict Urbanism: Aleppo project overlaps these layers, as it explores two kinds of evidence: evidence about the physical destruction of the city and evidence about how urban warfare is tracked and monitored from a distance. Conflict Urbanism: Colombia traces the trajectories of Colombians who were forcibly displaced between 1985 and 2016 as a result of the decades long conflict between state and non-state actors. The project visualizes conflict at the scale of the country through a single government-created dataset that will shape transitional justice efforts. The visualizations that have resulted reveal the paths of more than eight million people displaced by war while critically examining how this conflict has been recorded. Conflict Urbanism: Colombia is a collaboration with the Masters on Peacebuilding at Universidad de los Andes in Bogotá, Colombia.

How a Bill Becomes a Law: Crash Course Government and Politics #9
Oh my, Craig has his work cut out for him this week. The process of how a bill becomes a law can be pretty complex, fraught with potential bill-death at every corner. As if just getting through committee isn’t difficult enough, bills have to navigate a series of amendments and votes in both houses, potentially more committees, further compromise bills, and even more floor votes, just to end up on the chopping block of the president. And then in one fell swoop the president can stop a bill in its tracks with a veto! But then again, a presidential veto isn’t necessarily a bill’s end either. As you can see we’ve got to lot to cover, and we’ll be the first to admit this has been covered before, and extraordinarily well might we add, by the folks at School House Rock. But we’ll give it our best shot - without the singing of course. Well, not too much singing anyway.

David Armitage, "Civil War: A Genealogy"
Civil war is like pornography--we think know it when we see it. Yet ideas of civil war have a long and contested history with multiple meanings and contested applications. This lecture offers a critical history of conceptions of civil war, with special attention to its legal definition since the nineteenth century. The application of the term "civil war" can depend on whether you are a ruler or a rebel, the victor or the vanquished, an established government or an interested third party. It can also determine whether outside powers intervene, which provisions of international humanitarian laws, and what international aid bodies like the World Bank are willing to invest in war-torn countries. Conflict over its meaning, as well as the meaning of conflict, demand historical reconstruction to illuminate contemporary confusions about civil war. David Armitage is is the Lloyd C. Blankfein Professor of History and Chair of the Department of History at Harvard University. This lecture was recorded on May 9, 2013, as the annual Maurice and Muriel Fulton Lecture in Legal History.

Gerry Adams at Venice Conference: Peace Process and Conflict Resolution
Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams - Message to Peace Process and Conflict Resolution Conference - Venice 14 November 2009 PEACE PROCESSES AND CONFLICT RESOLUTION 14 NOVEMBER 2009, Conference in Venice VENICE CITY COUNCIL, PEACE CENTRE, KROSSING/PLANET K, MARCO POLO SYSTEM, ASSOCIAZIONE EUROPA LEVANTE in collaboration with BIBLIOTECA NAZIONALE MARCIANA Dialogue is the only way forward in resolving conflicts and must be between equals. But a dialogue among equals is possible only when the parties involved recognize the existence of a reality until now denied. There can be no pre-conditions dictated by one or the other party in a conflict to sit around the negotiating table. South Africa led the way in this direction by developing a series of important mechanisms in the resolution of the conflict that became a model for other conflicts. First of all in Ireland, where a peace process - even with ups and downs and certainly not yet complete - has been possible thanks to the recognition by all of the parties involved, the British government, republicans, unionists, the Irish government, that the only possibility to initiate a fruitful dialogue was to sit around a table as equals. Today many conflicts are still open, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, the Kurdish-Turkish conflict, the Basque-Spanish conflict. Venice has always played an important role as a place where open and frank debate can take place, as long as the parties involved are on equal terms. So it is in Venice (which through the years has hosted several times conferences and meetings and has commented on the conflicts we are going to discuss about) that the international conference on peace processes and conflict resolution will be held. The conference will not only be a statement on the current state of conflicts, those which are being resolved, and those which have been resolved (albeit partially), but will above all be a time for discussion and proposal. Proposal and discussion coming from the parties in the conflict which are generally considered to be second class, or against which conditions and preconditions are set before they can sit at the negotiating table. The South African and the Irish experience teach us that only when attempts to set preconditions are abandoned, and only after full acceptance of the other as legitimate partners with equal dignity and rights, dialogue has been possible. A dialogue at time hard but frank that has led to important results in the difficult building of a just and lasting peace. In Venice these are the people who will meet, discuss and present their proposals: Brian Currin (South African lawyer, mediator in the Irish conflict, in the Basque country, in Sri Lanka) Raymond McCartney (Sinn Fein International Department, MLA - deputy Northern Irish parliament) Emine Ayna (DTP chairwoman, party of the democratic society) Jone Goirizelaia (lawyer representing Ezker Aberzaleak, Independentist Basque Left) Haluk Gerger (writer, Turkey) Irfan Dundar (lawyer of Pkk president Abdullah Ocalan) Video messages by Nelson Mandela (Nobel Peace Price), Gerry Adams (president of Sinn Fein), video of the Independentist Basque Left (with a speech by Arnaldo Otegi), Moni Ovadia (musician).
