Smuggling a cow through a tunnel and other stories: working at the intersection of development and diplomacy in protracted conflicts. This presentation will reflect on the challenges of bringing together development and diplomatic approaches in protracted conflicts, as well as looking at how breaking down barriers between these disciplines can yield significant results.  

MPP Forum is a weekly event normally scheduled on Fridays during the academic year. It allows each MPP candidate to showcase their career journey and expertise on policy issue of their choice with the SPIA community. This formal presentation is about 50 minutes followed by 20-minute Q &A. 

The MPP Forum is supported by a bequest from mid-career alumnus Christopher Meyer (MCF '83-'84) who was an authority on copyright law in private practice, academia and government.

*Registration required.
