INCORE's Derry Conference on Ethnopolitical Conflict

June 29-July 3, 1998

In the summer of 1998, representatives of the Solomon Asch Center for Study of Ethnopolitical Conflict participated in the groundbreaking Derry Conference organized by INCORE and held in Derry/Londonderry, Northern Ireland. This meeting brought together over 50 scholars in the social sciences to share their insights and questions concerning ethnopolitical conflict. Below are links to a report on the conference written by Daniel Chirot of the University of Washington, a list of participants in the conference, and three articles about the conference from the August 1998 issue (Volume 29, Number 8) of the American Psychological Association's monthly newsletter, the APA Monitor.
