Talk at Columbia University

I will be giving a talk at the Harriman Institute of Columbia University on Tuesday 1 November 2011 at noon entitled ‘After Ethnic Cleansing: Bosnian Lessons for the Caucasus?’ I will be following in the footsteps of Milorad Dodik, President of Republika Srpska, who last week gave a lecture at Harriman entitled: An American Foreign Policy Success Story: The Dayton Accords, Republika Srpska, and Bosnia’s European Integration. The appearance legitimately generated some controversy both beforehand and on the evening in question. While my talk will not address Dodik’s discourse directly — I’ve a paper on this very subject under review — I will be touching upon the idea of the RS as a ‘liberal ethnocracy’ and BiH as a ‘model’ for other conflict zones.
