“Communication and Conflict.” Guest Speaker: Steven Pike, Assistant Professor, S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications, Syracuse University. Communication sits at the core of both conflict and conflict resolution, in such forms as diplomacy, negotiation, reputation, credibility, naming and shaming, informing, provoking, condemning. Understanding some of the tools of communication, and how they can be used and misused, provides conflict resolution practitioners and scholars useful models for their work. Steven Pike spent over 20 years with the U.S. Department of State as a diplomat and foreign service officer. He served as director of policy for the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs; public affairs counselor at the U.S. Embassy in the United Arab Emirates; and spokesman and media director of the U.S Mission to Canada.
Conversations in Conflict Studies is a weekly educational speaker series for students, faculty, and the community.
