Project Details and Goals

  • Track Two Diplomacy is emerging as both a field of practice for Conflict Resolution, but also as a field of academic enquiry.
  • As part of this project, a workshop was organized, bringing together leading scholars and practitioners in various aspects of the field for an investigation of where Track Two stands, and what might be new areas for it.  The workshop considered the state of the field today and new potential areas, such as human rights, environmentalism and the question of whether Track Two can be useful as a mechanism for “Talking to Terrorists.”
