Peace and Conflict Studies Presents: Prof. Jo-Anne Hart
Start Date: 10/23/2017Start Time: 7:00 PM
End Date: 10/23/2017End Time: 8:30 PM

Event Description:

Jo-Anne Hart is adjunct professor at the Watson Institute and professor at Lesley University in Cambridge, MA. She specializes in US security in the Persian Gulf, with particular reference to Iran. Hart also works as a practitioner in international conflict resolution: she is active with the international NGO Search for Common Ground, where she also serves on the Board of Directors. She has worked with the US military for more than a decade. Hart has years of experience in simulations, in security decision making exercises both as a participant at the national level and in designing simulations to support her own teaching. She gives briefings to senior military leaders and has lectured widely in the US and abroad.
Her lecture, Field Notes from Two Decades Pursuing Conflict Transformation Between the US and Iran, asks the following question: Why has it been so difficult to ease the longstanding hostility between the US and Iran despite mutual interests which could be well served? Speaking from her own experience taking part in unofficial, so-called Track Two, talks with Iranian negotiators since 1996, Prof. Hart will illustrate the process of seeking conflict resolution. At the same time, she is an invited expert for various US military exercises where she encourages threat reduction with Iran.  Hart will describe the back-channel process she initiated with Iranians and other key stakeholders in the Persian Gulf to avoid a naval incident at sea in those crowded and critical waters. This event is open to the public.
