The expected topics are as follows: (i) the concept of “Human Security” which theoretically connects conflict with development; (ii) “Peace Study and Development,” which provides theoretical and practical arguments for realizing peace; (iii) “UN PKO and Peace Building” as for Japan’s role; (iv) “assistance in governance and law/judicial system” for peaceful dispute processing and investment (for free-market economies); and (v) arbitration, mediation, negotiation and other techniques of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR).
