COLD WAR AND ITS LEGACY IN TIBET:
GREAT-POWER POLITICS AND REGIONAL SECURITY
20-21 APRIL 2002
ROOM 202, HARVARD HALL
This international conference on Tibet and South Asian security will explore the role of separatist movements, ethnic conflict, and great power intervention in international politics. The papers presented at the conference will be published and will be disseminated to senior U.S. officials and prominent scholars. Participants will explore ways of deterring - and, if necessary, coping with - internecine conflict and violence in South Asia and other volatile regions.
On the first day of the conference, the participants will reassess Cold War-era developments in Tibet and South Asia, based on newly declassified archival materials. On the second day, they will focus on the current situation and lessons from the past. The aim of the two days will be to offer conclusions about the long-term impact of separatist movements on the security environment in South Asia.
hosted by: The Harvard Project on Cold War Studies
