Academic Diplomacy in the Peace Processes of Aceh (PL50894): Skype Lecture

📥  Skype Lectures

Speaker: Professor Timo Kivimaki, Professor, Department of Politics, Languages & International Studies

External speaker: Mr Delsy Ronnie from Nonviolent Peaceforce

Date: 8 March 2016

Lectures with interaction via Skype through people in conflict areas is a far safer option than sending students to dangerous places.  At the same time they bring in the atmosphere from conflict areas in a way ordinary lectures wouldn’t be able to do so otherwise.  Furthermore, the ability to interact with fighters of conflicts help students to reconstruct the interpretations of the conflicting parties.  This is very important for the teaching of symbolic interactionalism and interpretative analysis of conflicts.
