“Collusion and Intractable Conflict: Understanding the Troubles in Northern Ireland.” Terrie Northrup, Ph.D. Assistant Professor of International Relations and Political Science at the Maxwell School of Syracuse University. In the 1960s through the 1990s, conflict in Northern Ireland continued with little hope of resolution or conciliation. How can we understand the nature of such "ethnic" or identity conflicts and what makes them resistant to resolution? The theoretical notion of "collusion" provides one way to make sense of this kind of intractable conflict.

We’re Turning 100!

To mark our centennial in the fall of 2024, the Maxwell School will hold special events and engagement opportunities to celebrate the many ways—across disciplines and borders—our community ever strives to, as the Oath says, “transmit this city not only not less, but greater, better and more beautiful than it was transmitted to us.”

Throughout the year leading up to the centennial, engagement opportunities will be held for our diverse, highly accomplished community that now boasts more than 38,500 alumni across the globe.
