EXPLORE CONFLICT RESOLUTION AND DEMOCRACY BUILDING IN THE BALKANS

This Burch Field Research Seminar is a six-week program focused on the role of international organizations in conflict resolution and democracy building in the Balkans. Students spend three weeks in Bosnia-Herzegovina and Kosovo learning about the history of the region and the violent ethnic conflict that followed the breakup of the former Yugoslav in the 1990s. The final three weeks are spent in Vienna visiting international organizations and exploring how these organizations worked to end the conflict.
