Elazar Barkan, professor of international and public affairs and co-director of the human rights concentration at SIPA, explains the process and possibility of conflict reconciliation in the wake of the September 11th attacks. He focuses on engaging non-state actors, such as al-Qaeda, and also provides examples from past conflicts where the parties involved had a long and prevalent history of irreconcilable differences, and have since taken great strides to form strong alliances.

Produced and Edited by David Marks
