Interethnic relations and peace building in Central Asia


Interethnic Relations and Peace Building in Central Asia Workshop will be held on 17-18 April 2014 in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan. The workshop is co-organized by the Central Asian Research Center (ORASAM) of the Kyrgyz-Turkish Manas University and Anthropology Program of American University of Central Asia.

Recently interethnic relations in multiethnic states have attracted greater importance. More people identify themselves with a particular ethnicity and ethnic group and more conflicts take an ethnic form. Therefore, nowadays it becomes extremely important to prevent interethnic conflicts, to establish peace and harmony in multiethnic societies, and to teach people to be tolerant towards one another.

The Interethnic Relations and Peace Building in Central Asia Workshop aims:

  • to bring together scholars and experts of ethnic studies;
  • to share and exchange the ongoing research projects on ethnic studies;
  • to introduce the ongoing projects on ethnic studies to the scholarly community and the public.

 

The working languages of the workshop are English and Russian.

The first day of the workshop 17 April (Thursday) will take place at Manas University, Djal Campus. The second day of the workshop 18 April (Friday) will take place in the Main Building of the American University of Central Asia.
